ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Hawks have selected Michigan State power forward Adreian Payne with the 15th overall pick of the NBA draft.

The 6-foot-10 Payne, a second-team All-Big Ten selection, helped the Spartans advance to the Elite Eight of the NCAA tournament in his senior season.

The Hawks are coming off a 38-44 season under first-year coach Mike Budenholzer, losing a first-round playoff series in seven games to No. 1 seed Indiana.

The Hawks currently have all five starters - Jeff Teague, Paul Millsap, Al Horford, Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll - under contract and five other reserves - Lou Williams, Dennis Schroder, Mike Muscala, John Jenkins and Pero Antic - signed through 2014-15.

General manager Danny Ferry wants to re-sign forward Mike Scott and guard Shelvin Mack as restricted free agents.
