When the Atlanta Hawks selected Onyeka Okongwu with the sixth pick in the 2020 draft, they were getting a gifted basketball player. While he is a little undersized to play the center position, has very little range on his shot, and does not create much for himself, Okongwu has a very specific skill set.
