The Atlanta Hawks continued to have confidence in Trae Young during his struggles at Summer League and the start of last season before he emerged as one of the NBA's most promising young guards.
"There were so many questions about him among teams in the lottery," said Adrian Wojnarowski on The Woj Pod. "I think he would have went to Orlando at (No. 6) if he did drop to them, but there weren't teams, like, moving up to try to get him.
"I remember in that draft there were teams trying to get up to get Jaren Jackson at four from Memphis."
The Hawks received criticism for giving up on Luka Doncic as they were all-in on Young, but that gamble is beginning to make more sense.
