"Pop and [GM] R.C. [Buford] create a very inclusive and collaborative environment that allows anyone from the front office and coaching staff to truly look under the hood and understand why decisions are made," Ferry said. "Mike's been a part of that, and that's an environment I want in Atlanta. It's really hard to find a first-time head coach, or any coach, who has the understanding of the process of building a team long-term and short-term and also has a system-based approach as to how he wants a team to play. Along with having a clear vision of how he wants a team to play, Mike has a very strong understanding of the CBA and player development and all the facets that make up big-picture thinking for a team."

The Hawks have 14 players on their current roster with Lighty and Dawson coming to training camp. The Hawks will most likely add two more players and as many as four come the start of camp. Another guard and small forward could be added. I expect the Hawks to keep just 14 on the roster for the regular season. General manager Danny Ferry likes to have the flexibility of the additional roster spot. The status of Lou Williams, rehabbing from a torn ACL, is still a factor in determining the roster.
