From GM Zordor:

The Hawks are not about star power, they are about team concept, and Devin Booker is a guy who fits nicely in the team concept. He adds another perimeter threat to the Hawks, who albeit not in a deep need for another shooter look to Booker to be the answer to take the place of the aging Korver in the long term. With not knowing if Carroll will be back next year, taking booker here is a safe pick to put one more legitimate threat back on the wing in booker instead of having to turn to young guards Bazemore or Jenkins who have had very lackluster showings in their tenure with the Hawks. Booker seems to be one of the most NBA ready prospects because he has a very good feel for the game and a superior shooting stroke to match his high Basketball IQ. He has been overlooked for 14 picks now falling out of the lottery, and he is ready to make some noise in the NBA with a chip on his shoulder.

Up next we've got the Orlando Magic and GM Andy Livingston who traded back into #16 with the Celtics.
