I'm sure it's a complete coincedence the player you prefer is the one your team selected.

The Hawks took the best player available, which is the smart play. If Barker develops as expected, he could be traded for a proven offensive player. I am glad the Hawks took the lowest risk player (IMO) in the bunch because they don't have the luxury or gambling on relatively more of a long shot prospect.
