Hawks Announce 2009 Training Camp Roster

It’s almost here – with Media Day set for Monday, official activities for the 2009-10 season are so close I can almost smell it. It’s getting real.

Speaking of getting real, it’s about to get real for several players trying to earn their way onto an NBA roster, as today the Hawks announced their list of training camp invitees.

I daresay this is the most robust group I’ve seen since I’ve been here, as several of the guys invited to camp have spent time on NBA rosters in the past (including Othello Hunter and Mario West, both members of last year’s Hawks squad). Local prospect Garrett Siler from Augusta State will be there after impressing the Hawks in workouts over the summer, and Courtney Sims has been getting some hype from his performance on the Hawks practice court over the summer as well.

There will definitely be some heated competition for the last few roster spots, no doubt about it.

The Hawks hit the floor Tuesday for the first day of workouts, and it can’t get here soon enough!
