    ATLANTA — The Atlanta Hawks have selected Miami point guard Shane Larkin with the 18th overall pick in the NBA draft, one spot after selecting point guard Dennis Schroeder of Germany at No. 17.
    The Hawks will likely trade one of the point guards.
    Larkin, the son of baseball Hall of Fame shortstop Barry Larkin, averaged 14.5 points and 4.6 assists last season at Miami.
    The 5-foot-11, 176-pound Larkin entered the draft after spending two seasons with the Hurricanes. Last season, he helped Miami win the Atlantic Coast Conference regular season and tournament titles and advance to the Sweet 16.
    The Hawks haven't indicated if they want to re-sign Jeff Teague, the incumbent starting point guard who's a restricted free agent.
    Atlanta was potentially considering a center or a shooting guard or forward with its first pick before selecting the 6-foot-1, 180-pound Schroeder, who seems to have impressed Hawks general manager Danny Ferry at a Nike camp in April.
    The Hawks, a possible longshot candidate to sign Atlanta native and Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard as an unrestricted free agent, still likely want to acquire a big post player so Al Horford can move to power forward.

UGA guard picked by Pistons
    Joe Dumars looked at his roster and figured there was really only one choice once the eighth pick in the NBA draft came around.
    No, it wouldn't be Trey Burke, the local favorite who led Michigan to the Final Four. The Detroit Pistons needed a scorer who could play on the wing more than they needed a point guard.
    So the Pistons took Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, a 6-foot-5 guard from Georgia who was the Southeastern Conference player of the year last season. Caldwell-Pope averaged 18.5 points per game as a sophomore in 2012-13 and shot 37 percent from 3-point range.
    Burke, Michael Carter-Williams and C.J. McCollum were all available when Detroit's turn arrived.
