ATLANTA (AP) — After another round of training camp introductions the Atlanta Hawks are ready for Year 2 of their massive makeover.
The Hawks have only two players who were with the team just two seasons ago, center Al Horford and point guard Jeff Teague, opting for a complete transformation of a franchise that has been a consistent playoff contender but never a championship threat.
General manager Danny Ferry started the process a year ago, letting go Joe Johnson and Marvin Williams. This year, he didn't make much of an effort to keep Josh Smith, who moved on to Detroit, and replaced him with Paul Millsap.
Atlanta has yet to become an attractive destination for big-name free agents but Ferry hopes to change that by turning Philips Arena into San Antonio East.
