The Hawks select Alpha Kaba with the 60th and final pick of the 2017 draft. Since Isaiah Thomas was picked last in 2011, two of the five players picked in this spot have managed to play in the NBA: Cory Jefferson (2014) and Robert Sacre (2012).

The 31st pick belongs to the Hornets now, after they acquired it from the Hawks in the Dwight Howard trade. It was originally traded from Brooklyn to Atlanta way back in 2012, as part of the Joe Johnson sign-and-trade deal.
