“I enjoyed the night too, I think anytime you can pick up a lottery quality player drafting in the middle of the pack is a really, really good night,” Koonin said. “I was thrilled with our pick and I think AJ is going to make an impact on this city over time.”

When asked if Griffin would ever actually play for the Hawks or be used in a trade to pick up a veteran presence.

“I would say that we drafted him to play for us but you never know, you never know. Today there’s not a secret plan that we took him somebody else, we took him for the Atlanta Hawks, but I’ll never say never on never and never.”
