Hawks look to build chemistry after more turnover

AP Sports Writer

ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Hawks look like they're starting over.


After a disjointed season with a lame-duck coach and bunch of one-and-done players, the Hawks have kept up their rebuilding efforts with another summer of heavy turnover.

Only seven players return from a year ago, and even they'll face a bit of an adjustment having to mesh with a new coaching staff and style.

With that in mind, building chemistry will be a major focus during training camp, which began Tuesday with the first of three days of workouts at the University of Georgia.

In fact, new coach Mike Budenholzer had that in mind when he decided to take camp on the road, believing that some time away from Atlanta will speed the process of blending together so many new players.
