Erick Dampier May Have Ruled Out Hawks

Citing a “source,” the reliable Ken Berger of CBS Sports just reported, via Twitter, that free-agent center Erick Dampier has narrowed his list of teams with which he’d sign to three; the Hawks, once rumored to be a potential destination, do not appear:

The Heat, Rockets, and Nuggets were mentioned alongside the Hawks in earlier reports. Their presence here, minus the Hawks’, strongly suggests that Dampier has declined Atlanta’s offer.
