MARTY BLAKE'S POST-DRAFT ANALYSIS:

"They traded Dickau and that means they don't have to sign their pick. The Hawks wanted Dickau and gave the Kings one of their accumulated first round picks. Otherwise, Dickau would not have gone in the first round. Corsley Edwards was a kid we snatched this year. He was the player of the year in the Northeast Conference out of Central Connecticut. We got him in the USBL and he was the best player there. He's a 6-7 skywalker."
