Hawks Notebook: Ferry leading changes at camp

ATLANTA Last season, with the NBA lockout shortening training camp to a laughable formality, the Hawks two most recent second-round picks, Pape Sy (10) and Keith Benson (11), did not make the roster. Both of those players were invited to this weeks rookie camp and will participate on the teams entry in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas and are hoping to land a roster spot. Under...

Hawks eyeing size in pre-draft workouts

The Atlanta Hawks finished their season with only one player on their roster whom they have drafted in the last three years starting point guard Jeff Teague. On Saturday, they begin the process that could improve that total as they begin pre-draft workouts at Philips Arena. The NBA Draft is on June 28. Last year, the Hawks did not have a first-round pick, as they sent it to Washington...

Atlanta Hawks: Hawks waive Sy, Wanamaker, Rolle

The Hawks waived forward Magnum Rolle and guards Pape Sy and Brad Wanamaker today. More cuts are coming later today: The roster now stands at 16, one more than the maximum, and it’s possible Atlanta will carry the minimum 13 players for the regular season. The decisions on Rolle and Wanamaker were not unexpected but the Hawks gave up on Sy after investing in him as a long-term...

Hawks Waive Pape Sy, Ending a Bizarre Non-Era

Pape Sy is probably never going to be a useful NBA player. In that respect, the decision to waive him (along with Magnum Rolle and Brad Wanamaker) is perfectly defensible for a team struggling to reach the league's roster minimum without going over the luxury tax line.It does not make the decision to draft Sy, despite his age and lack of professional experience, or to buy out...

Hawks Sign Willie Green

I must say that, having become inured to his constant Willie Green-ness and being somewhat thankful that he was some other blogger's problem, I hadn't noticed that Green has stopped turning the ball over. So he's got that going for him. Related, the frontcourt has copious offensive rebounding opportunities to look forward to.Over the age of 30, lacking three-point range...

Atlanta Hawks: Camp Report Day 13

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...

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...

Kemba Walker’s Impressive Preseason Debut

There were games not between the Lakers and Clippers last night?  Yes, yes there were, and in one of them something happened that you don’t often see in an NBA game of any sort; preseason, regular season, or postseason: how ’bout a rookie taking over down the stretch to the tune of his team’s final five points in a 79-77 victory.  That’s what Kemba Walker did for the...

Atlanta Hawks: Camp Report Day 9

So today I was telling Larry Drew it looks like the team’s decision on which of the young point guards to keep is an important one. Because that player is likely will actually have to take on a significant role on a team looking to the playoffs until Kirk Hinrich returns. I guess my usual reporter’s stoicism was betrayed by my skeptical expression. “I’ve got my hands full...

Ball Don’t Lie’s 2011-12 Season Previews: Atlanta Hawks

Usually NBA season previews are best read in October, back when football games hardly mattered, Midnight Madness was a few weeks away, and baseball was winding down. Perhaps with the last of the offseason's iced tea in hand, as you whiled away on an too-warm-for-the-season afternoon. Well, pour yourself a glass of bull shot and tighten those mittens, because it's mid-December...

Atlanta Hawks: Camp Report Day 2: Still tax-strapped

From what I can gather, Rick Sund is exploring sign-and-trade scenarios for Jamal Crawford. But, so far, Sund does not have the green light to approve a transaction that results in a luxury tax payment. As long as that’s the case, I don’t see how it can happen. After signing Tracy Mc Grady, Jason Collins and Vladmir Radmanovic, Atlanta has roughly $67.7 million in guaranteed...

Atlanta Hawks: Camp roster rounds into shape

Zaza and Magnum Rolle were at Philips today. Twin is expected to re-sign with the Hawks tomorrow. Earl Watson told Jody Genessy of the Deseret News he hasn’t decided where he will sign. So, assuming T-Mac and Twin follow through and sign with the Hawks and Watson ends up picking Atlanta, this is what the team depth chart would look like for the start of camp (not counting Kirk...

Fantasy Basketball Team Preview: Atlanta Hawks

I’m not a big fan of the Hawks, but mostly because they’re almost certain to be Eastern Conference playoff rivals for the Bulls this year and probably for some time to come. So, while it may appear that I don’t have their best interest in mind, I still think they should amnesty the hell out of Joe Johnson. Al Horford and Josh Smith both ended last season in the Top 25 on the...

Hawks' core still in place, ready for season

NBA teams still don't know their schedules and they're awaiting their marching orders from the league as the players continue the process of ratifying a new collective bargaining agreement that would end a five-month lockout. But if the players do ratify the agreement, as expected, operations could resume as quickly as Dec. 8, with regular season games beginning 17 days...
