Atlanta Hawks training camp 2012: Three players battle for final two roster spots

Several players are fighting to make the Hawks' roster in camp.

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The battle for the final two roster spots on the Atlanta Hawks appears to be down to three candidates: Damion James, Anthony Tolliver and James Anderson. The Hawks' roster is down to 17 players following the release of Keith Benson and Isma'il Muhammad and the team can have no more than 15 players once the regular season begins.

Tolliver is a four-year NBA veteran who has spent most of his career coming off the bench, though he did start 29 games for Golden State during the 2009-10 season. The forward has career averages of 6.8 points and 4.5 rebounds per game.

James is entering his third NBA season, and he spent the first two with the Nets. He was originally a Hawks first round draft pick.

Anderson is also entering his third NBA season; he spent the last two years as a reserve for the San Antonio Spurs. He appeared in 77 games for the Spurs and made four starts over the course of his time there.
