ESPN Sources: Golden State has acquired Atlanta’s No. 41 pick in tonight’s NBA Draft. The cost: $1.3M and a 2024 second-round pick. Atlanta moved No. 44 to Miami yesterday. Hawks have Nos. 8, 10, 17 and 35 tonight. Golden State has Nos. 28, 41 and 58.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 20, 2019
Th 41st pick appeared to be one of the most available picks in the draft for the Denver Nuggets to purchase since the Hawks entered the week with six total draft picks. The 41st pick also has a bit of sentimental value for the Nuggets, not that that would matter in the decision making process. Nikola Jokic was the 41st pick way back in 2014. Jarred Vanderbilt was the 41st pick in last year’s draft.
The $1.3 million price tag sets the market for 2nd round picks this year so expect picks above that spot to go for slightly more, picks behind that spot to go for slightly less.
