(B/R) — One week before the NBA Draft, teams are buckling down, sorting through prospects, finalizing workouts, creating trade proposals, digging for information and imagining different scenarios that may occur on June 26 and 27.

The Atlanta Hawks are said to be considering multiple prospects at No. 1. And the feeling around the team and league is that they’re still undecided.

Rumors continue to swirl about potential risers and fallers.

Teams also learned that some key international players are officially staying in the draft after Sunday’s withdrawal deadline.

Some of the analysis is repeated from the previous mock draft.

1. Atlanta Hawks: Zaccharie Risacher

  • Previous Mock Draft Spot: No. 1
  • Team: JL Bourg-en-Bresse
  • Position: SG/SF
  • Size: 6-foot-8, 204 lbs
  • Age: 19
  • Nationality: French
  • Pro Comparison: Harrison Barnes

Rival teams continue to guess who the Atlanta Hawks prefer at No. 1. They’re still looking at multiple prospects, and those around the team and league believe Atlanta remains undecided.

Zaccharie Risacher, Donovan Clingan and Alex Sarr all have been the names tied to Atlanta the most. There seems to be some level of intrigue in Matas Buzelis as well, but presumably only for trade-down purposes.

We continue to give the edge to Risacher, a perceived safe pick with a valued archetype and pathways to improve and bust through the three-and-D level that he brings to JL Bourg.

While scouts continue to debate the height of Risacher’s ceiling, there is a perceived level of certainty tied to his positional size, shooting and defensive tools/quickness. That could sway the Hawks to lean his way without a sure-thing star at the top. Injury problems with Saddiq Bey and AJ Griffin could also help the case for Risacher to Atlanta.
