Hawks GM confirms that he is trying to move up in the Draft

Atlanta has 6 picks: Nos. 8,10 and 17 in the first round, Nos. 35,41 and 44 in the second

Atlanta Hawks gm Travis Schlenk confirms to Chris Vivlamore that he wants to move up in the upcoming NBA Draft:

“It’s no secret with our three second-round picks we are going to try to package them and move up if we can,” Schlenk said on Friday. “That’s easy for me to sit here and say. It’s harder to accomplish.”

“I don’t feel urgency to make a trade,” Schlenk said. “Will we try to be active? Sure. We try to be active in every situation like this, whether it’s the trade deadline or during free agency or during the draft. Those are the three times transactions can take place. We’ll take advantage of those situations and try to better our team every chance we get.”

Atlanta has 6 picks: Nos. 8,10 and 17 in the first round, Nos. 35,41 and 44 in the second.
