Craig Hauck is in line to join a group of Atlanta Hawks to go to the NBA

Craig Hauak is a former NBA player who spent the past two seasons with the Atlanta Hawks.

A few months ago, Hauck, who played for the Atlanta Thrashers of the NBA Development League (D-League), was selected by the New Orleans Pelicans as a draft-and-stash pick.

Hauck played in all of Atlanta’s games in the NBA D-League this past season.

The 6-foot-6 forward is considered one of the most talented big men in the D-Linemen Association, and he has a strong defensive profile that should help him in the league.

Hauck played with the Thrasher for two seasons from 2014-15, and was named an All-D-20 first team by the league’s coaches.

In the NBA, Hauk is a key cog in the Hawks’ offense.

His shot blocking is elite, and his ability to create shots is second to none.

He averaged 19.8 points and 9.3 rebounds per game this past campaign, and the Hawks finished the season with a .750 winning percentage.
