The Atlanta Hawks’ preseason came and went, lost in the shuffle and placed on the back burner by the Falcons’ undefeated season (so far).
The Hawks are still a blank canvas after posting a 3-4 record during a warm-up act that included some encouraging moments.
However, their future still poses more questions than answers.
Head coach Larry Drew narrowed the roster down to 14 players instead of sticking with the 15 allowed by the league, creating controversy in the process by cutting forward Damion James along with James Anderson.
James had pleasantly surprised everyone with his performance in the exhibition games, so why did he get released?
That is just one of the five questions the Hawks have yet to answer before their regular season debut on Friday night against the Houston Rockets.
