Article Summary:

The Atlanta Hawks have selected Auburn guard Sharife Cooper with the No. 48 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. Cooper, once thought of as a potential top-20 pick, slipped down the board this evening. Cooper is an Atlanta native and played high school basketball at McEachern High School in Powder Springs, GA.

The Hawks seemingly stuck to their best player available strategy tonight following the selections of Jalen Johnson at No. 20 and Cooper at 48. Getting him at No. 48 certainly seems like a bargain, and he was definitely the best player on the board in the eyes of a lot of people around the league.
