Soon after their game against Charlotte tomorrow night, the Hawks will trim the roster down from 18 to no more than 13 (the deadline is Saturday). They have 10 guaranteed contracts and you figure Jannero Pargo is safe. That leaves seven players with contracts that are not fully guaranteed vying for no fewer than two spots and no more than five (16 is the max roster size): Keith Benson, Ivan Johnson, Magnum Rolle, Jerry Stackhouse, Pape Sy, Donald Sloan and Brad Wanamaker. Here is the depth chart with only the guaranteed guys plus Pargo included (and not including Kirk Hinrich): PG: Jeff Teague/Pargo SG: Joe Johnson SF: Marvin Williams/Tracy McGrady PF: Josh Smith/Vladimir Radmanovic C: Al Horford/Zaza Pachulia/Jason Collins What do the Hawks need most?

Hawks Sign Jannero Pargo

Fun with the Hoopinion archives, from August 13, 2008: I thought signing Jannero Pargo was a bad idea but leave it to the Atlanta Hawks to take an unappealing hypothetical transaction and do one worse by making an unexpected actual move that's far more dispiriting: signing Flip Murray to block Acie Law IV.If believing in Acie Law's potential doesn't take you back, then...

Atlanta Hawks: Camp Report Day 12

Here’s what Larry Drew had to say today about Jannero Pargo, who was officially signed and immediately designated the backup to Jeff Teague: “Very similar to Jeff, he’s a point guard who can score. But the experience itself is very valuable.” In my assessment of Pargo last night, I didn’t note that he does have a pretty good scoring rate. In fact, his per-36 minute scoring...

Bobcats at Atlanta Hawks: Game thread

The Hawks signed guard Willie Green. “You are talking about a guy who is a combo guard that’s a scorer, tough defender,”Larry Drew said. “He’s a guy that plays hard when he’s on the floor. He’s kind of had to do it the hard way therefore he has an appreciation for what he’s earned. I think he’s kind of a throwback. Kind of an old-school style player.” Like Jannero...

Hawks Lose Exhibition Opener

Boxscore Nobody got hurt. Marvin Williams has a strong head of hair. Jannero Pargo's joining the Hawks tomorrow, undermining what interest one might have had in watching Donald Sloan and Brad Wanamaker tonight.Since basically nobody coming of the bench for the Hawks can score, much less create his own shot, the team's lack of depth is going to appear exaggerated if the reserves...
