The Atlanta Hawks brought in center Kyrylo Fesenko for a workout on Tuesday, according to a report from Shams Charania of Real GM. With only 14 players on their roster, the Hawks have the ability to add a player without making any cuts.
Fesenko was selected 38th overall in the 2007 NBA Draft by the Philadelphia 76ers. He was traded to the Jazz, where he played through the end of the 2010-11 season. Last year he appeared in three games as a member of the Indiana Pacers.
A 7'1, 25-year-old center from Ukraine, he has career averages of 2.3 points and 2.0 rebounds in 8.2 minutes per game. He was cut by the Chicago Bulls earlier in October and is currently a free agent.
The Hawks have Josh Smith and Al Horford on their starting front line, with Zaza Pachulia and Johan Petro as their current backup centers. It is expected that Fesenko will end up somewhere before the season is over, even if the Hawks decide to pass on him.
