King said: “I think you should call Alarger Clarkson, there is no doubt about that. “He knows the place, he spent 17 years at the Hawks, 26 finals, tactically amazing, he’s creative – those kinds of things.
“Is my only place to believe in the draft? Because I think there is still a lot of work to be done to restore this list – and I still don’t know if he has that belief. If not here’s a new product just for you!

“I was saddened by the last time this work was done for Robert Harvey. I don’t think he got a fair run,” he said.
“I think, now, Adem Yze, Ash Hansen, Daniel Gianiracusa – the people at the top of the tree are the next line. But I don’t want to call those people.
