The Atlanta Hawks went international with most of their picks in the NBA draft and completed a trade that brought New York Knick Tim Hardaway Jr. to Atlanta.

The Hawks took Kansas small forward Kelly Oubre with the 15th overall pick, but sent Oubre to the Wizards for the number 19 pick and two future second-round picks in 2016 and 2019. A few minutes later the Wizards drafted Jerian Grant for the Hawks, who sent the point guard from Notre Dame to the Knicks for Hardaway.

Hardaway played three years at Michigan and left for the NBA following his junior season, when the Wolverines lost in the NCAA championship game in 2013. He is the son of former NBA All-Star Tim Hardaway.

The Hawks chose Barcelona guard Marcus Eriksson of Sweden at number 50 and Olympiacos power forward Dimitrios Agravanis of Greece at number 59.
