The Atlanta Hawks have waived guard James Anderson and forward Damion James, reducing their roster to 14 players.
Anderson made one start in six preseason games and averaged 2.0 points.
James averaged 6.5 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.7 assists. He made two preseason starts while also appearing in six games.
Saturday's cuts could be the final moves before the season. Forward Anthony Tolliver, who has a non-guaranteed contract, appears to have won his battle for a roster spot.
The Hawks open the regular season on Friday against Houston.

If anyone has ever watched The Game 365, they probably weren’t very impressed. I have never heard of it or the network it airs on (MSG), but it appears that they finally had something very entertaining to share when they talked about current New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson.
Woodson shared his story about his life. Most of the show was boring, but my man Stephen Coston...
In a moment so full of passion for the NBA that I can only assume it was stolen from a David Stern wet dream, Tracy McGrady recently landed in China, where he will play for the Qingdao Eagles of the Chinese Basketball Association, as he is the next in the distinguished line of former NBA players to finish his career in the Far East. Despite a career hindered by injuries, T-mac has...

The Hawks are a lot smaller on the perimeter this season with the trades of Joe Johnson and Marvin Williams.
Mike Woodson, the current coach of the New York Knicks, will give you some perks if you work hard for him. Woodson was recently on “The Game 365″ on the MSG Network, and he had a great story for us back when he coached the Atlanta Hawks.
