Fantasy Pros

● By Travis Pulver
Playing in the NBA Finals and winning the championship is the goal of every team. But the two teams that make the Finals are at a disadvantage. Why?

The Atlanta Hawks had a 3% chance of getting the No. 1 pick. However, sometimes the NBA Draft lottery gods smile down upon a team and give them a gift. For the Hawks, the gift may be one of two Frenchmen, according to our 2024 NBA Mock Draft, forward Zaccharie Risacher or center Alexandre Sarr.
