In the interview, Schlenk says that they had planned on trading up to #17 with Milwaukee to select Kevin Huerter, but the Bucks' pick was leaked on Twitter. Schlenk says that allowed Atlanta to pull out of the trade and keep a draft pick.

Just got off the phone with Hawks GM Travis Schlenk. He said that Atlanta & Milwaukee were working on a trade last night that would have had the Hawks moving up from #19 to #17, but the Milwaukee pick at #17 leaked on twitter, so the Hawks backed out of the deal.— Joe Fortenbaugh (@JoeFortenbaugh) June 22, 2018
