Kyrylo Fesenko, a Ukrainian journeyman, was reported by Shams Charania of Real GM as a potential candidate for the Atlanta Hawks final roster spot:

Fesenko will receive a formal workout with the Hawks today in hopes of finding his third NBA home since leaving the Utah Jazz in 2011.
He is by no means a game changer for any franchise at this point, but he’s a classic banger who could potentially bring some depth to a front court that is relatively thin size-wise outside of Zaza Pachulia.
At 7’1, Fesenko has outstanding length, measuring a staggering 7’4 wingspan and 9’4 standing reach. So his size could potentially prove to be nice addition on the offensive glass where Atlanta struggled mightily last season.
Although outside of his presence on the boards and a decent aptitude for the pick and roll, his skill set is incredibly raw. A truth which could actually work in the Hawks favor, as they could mold him to fit their new identity as they see fit.
