Free-Agent Signee Josh Powell Eager To Help Hawks

Tim Povtak of NBA FanHouse recently chatted with power forward Josh Powell, one of the newest members of the Atlanta Hawks, about the coming season. Powell, a five-year veteran, spent each of the last two years with the L.A. Lakers. At 6-foot-8, he figures to bolster the Hawks’ depth at center and power forward.

Povtak says Powell isn’t sure about his role:

“I haven’t talked much about how they plan to use me, but I know they wanted me,‘’ Powell said. "I know they are looking for guys who can play.’’

But that uncertainty shouldn’t be a problem. “[T]he Hawks know I’ll do whatever I’m asked,” Powell said.

Powell owns career averages of 3.8 points and 3.0 rebounds. Atlanta, on top of being his sixth NBA club, is sort-of his hometown team. Though born in Charleston, SC, he attended Riverdale High School, which isn’t far from downtown Atlanta.
