It's close with Jarnell Stokes, but I think Mitch McGary is the best option for Atlanta at the No. 43 pick.
The red flags are certainly there with McGary: lingering back problems, a rudimentary offensive game and his positive marijuana test in March.
All three of these are reasons why I think McGary could take a huge tumble down the draft board on Thursday night. He's ranked at No. 30 in the DraftExpress mock from June 20.
But the hustle, size and rebounding are definitely there. Atlanta could use all of those traits coming off the bench in 2014-15.
It's definitely a long shot, but NBADraft.net compared McGary's game to that of Detroit Pistons great Bill Laimbeer.
If McGary has half the career that Laimbeer had, the Hawks will get a huge steal drafting him at No. 43.
