Atlanta Hawks GM Landry Fields had an interesting take when asked if he thinks that whoever ends up going No. 1 in the 2024 NBA Draft can make the roster a win-now team.

(via Atlanta Hawks):

Reporter: “Is drafting a player No. 1 overall give you the ability to be a win-now team?”

Fields: “I don’t know about that. I think that having No. 1 is a great position for us, doesn’t really change our landscape too much. It’s something that’s connected to where we’re at, but at the same time with so many things that change in the NBA at large, you really wanna look at this pick as an opportunity to, one, find the fit, and then find the really high upside guys.”
