The New Orleans Pelicans have reportedly agreed to a trade an hour before the NBA Draft, sending out the No. 4 overall pick to the Atlanta Hawks, per multiple NBA insiders.

The Pelicans have reportedly agreed to a trade with the Hawks, sending the No. 4 overall pick to Atlanta, according to multiple insiders.

ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski first broke the news.

"Atlanta has acquired New Orleans No. 4 pick in the draft for No. 8 and 17 and 35, league sources tell ESPN. Pelicans are sending Solomon Hill, No. 57 pick and a future second-round pick," he reports.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are reportedly also getting a protected first round pick in the deal.

The Hawks are reportedly targeting Virginia's DeAndre Hunter with the pick at No. 4 overall. This is the second straight big NBA Draft night trade for Atlanta.

"Atlanta is pursuing Virginia's DeAndre Hunter with the No. 4 pick, league sources tell ESPN. Atlanta GM Travis Schlenk makes a big move in lottery second year in a row to get his man. Last year, it was Trae Young. This time, DeAndre Hunter," Woj added.
