The Atlanta Hawks continue to be the busiest team ahead of the 2019 NBA Draft.
The Hawks have reportedly agreed to acquire the No. 4 pick from the New Orleans Pelicans -- who control the pick after the reported Anthony Davis deal -- in exchange for the No. 8, 17 and 35 picks in tonight's NBA Draft and a "heavily protected" first-round pick in 2020, according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
Veteran guard Solomon Hill will also head to Atlanta, according to the report.

This would be the third trade within 24 hours for the Hawks, who entered this week with six Draft picks. They have already unloaded the No. 44 pick to the Miami Heat and the No. 41 pick to the Golden State Warriors. The Hawks still control the No. 10 pick.
According to Wojnarowski, the Hawks are targeting Virginia's DeAndre Hunter with the No. 4 pick.
