NBA Summer League 2012: Hawks Open Against Wizards

The Hawks begin Summer League action on Friday afternoon at Cox Pavilion in Las Vegas. Atlanta will face the Washington Wizards in a matchup between a pair of teams both looking to rebuild their franchises.

Neither team has played a Summer League game yet, so this will be the first opportunity to see some of this young talent in action. As it's been noted already, Summer League play provides the first look at John Jenkins, who will headline the Hawks' roster as their top draft pick out of Vanderbilt.

In trading Joe Johnson to the Nets and Marvin Williams to the Jazz, the Hawks are hoping to discover an impact player this summer, if he's out there.

The game is scheduled for 4 p.m. ET.
