After offseason changes, this isn't same 'ol Hawks

Posted: Updated:

No one can say this is the same ol' Atlanta Hawks.

Tired of one year blending into another, with little progress in either direction, the Hawks decided to take a dramatically different path heading into this season. Joe Johnson was traded. So was Marvin Williams.

Atlanta is left with a guard-dominated team that could be highly entertaining, though it will be hard-pressed to win as many games. New general manager Danny Ferry has put together a roster filled with expiring contracts, making it clear that he's got his eye more on the future than the present.

Still, coach Larry Drew believes the team has enough talent to make a run at its sixth straight playoff appearance. He calls this "a very unique opportunity" to begin building a championship team.
