NBA Preseason 2012: Hawks undecided on final roster size

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

The Atlanta Hawks have more players than they need for the season, which means someone is going to have to go soon. Head coach Larry Drew is still undecided on what the team will do.

The Atlanta Hawks can't keep all of their players, because they have one more than they need to meet the league maximum of 15 by Oct. 29. That means someone is going to have to go, but it won't be any of the 13 players with guaranteed contracts.

Hawks head coach Larry Drew said he was undecided on the roster size, whether they'll keep 15 players, or shorten it down to 13 and leave roster spots open. Drew plans to talk to each player next week to discuss what their role on the team will be for the upcoming season.

That means guys like James Anderson and Damion James still have a chance to prove themselves, but one of them is going to be the odd man out. Anthony Tolliver, who like Anderson and James doesn't have a guaranteed contract, should be safe, but obviously he's at risk of losing a spot, too.
