    NBA Mock Draft 2017: Jawun Evans pegged to Hawks at No. 31

    The Atlanta Hawks hold the No. 19, No. 31 and No. 60 picks in the 2017 NBA Draft and, as you may expect, the great majority of focus has been on the team’s first-round selection. However, the No. 31 overall pick is exceedingly valuable given the way that NBA contracts are structured and the good folks at DraftExpress put up a mock draft updated over the weekend that includes a fascinating choice for Atlanta. That pick is Oklahoma State point guard Jawun Evans. For reference, the same mock has the Hawks selecting Creighton big man Justin Patton at No. 19. While that would not be a surprise based on other mock drafts, Evans even being available at No. 31 shouldn’t be considered a given. Sam Vecenie
