Atlanta Hawks announce 2012 Training Camp Roster


The Atlanta Hawks announced their training camp roster earlier today via the team’s official news release.

The Hawks have an 18-man squad going into camp including new additions Keith Benson, Damion James, James Anderson, Anthony Tolliver and Carldell “Squeaky” Johnson.

Atlanta currently has 13 players under contract — the deals with Benson, James, Anderson, Tolliver and Johnson are not guaranteed. The Hawks are allowed to carry a maximum of 15 players on their regular season roster, so were going to see which of the five aforementioned newcomers will win the final two remaining roster spots.

Atlanta Hawks Media Day activities tip-off Monday at 2:45 p.m. on the Philips Arena practice court. First practice will be held Tuesday at 10:00 a.m.

With that being said, here’s a look at the official training camp roster:
