Royal Ivey and Shelvin Mack are battling for the third-string point guard role on the Atlanta Hawks.
Mike Budenholzer said the Hawks have a "hard" decision on which player to keep.
âItâs a battle," Budenholzer added. "Thatâs the great part of this training camp and the group that weâve brought in. There is a lot of competition. Both guys have done well.

The Hawks will start Jeff Teague at point guard and bring Dennis Schroder as the backup.
