2012 NBA Draft Results: John Jenkins Selected By Hawks With No. 23 Pick

With the No. 23 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Atlanta Hawks selected John Jenkins from Vanderbilt.

Jenkins is one of the most prolific shooters in the draft, a two-guard with range galore and two years of top-notch scoring at Vandy. He'd been rumored to be a target of the Memphis Grizzlies at No. 25, who are now expected to take a look at Washington guard Tony Wroten.

Jenkins' teammate Festus Ezeli is also expected to be in play in the first round, possibly to the Miami Heat at No. 27. The Hawks have a need behind Joe Johnson and Jeff Teague at guard, and Jenkins could receive plenty of playing time early. This is the first move from new Hawks GM Danny Ferry.
