The All-Time Drafted By the Hawks But Never Played For the Hawks Team

Inspired by this post at Hardwood Paroxysm:

PG -- Bob Cousy
2G -- John Williamson
SF -- David Thompson
PF --Pau Gasol
C --Bill Russell
6th man -- Wayne Embry

Honorable mention to Hall of Famer Arvydas Sabonis since the Hawks drafted him but did so before Sabonis turned 21. The pick was voided so they never really held his rights.

Leave your corrections, commiserations and caterwauling in the comments.

Should the wacky adventures of Dr. J, '71 in Atlanta be included as an honorable mention? He even received a Hawks Jersey before he played. Not sure if he got to play one game. That could've been some great games to watch!
