ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Hawks sure look different as they prepare for the start of training camp Tuesday.
Joe Johnson is gone. So is Marvin Williams.
There's also a new general manager, Danny Ferry.
In all, the Hawks have only five players remaining from a team that made its fifth straight trip to the playoffs, only to be eliminated in the opening round by Boston.
One of the holdovers, Josh Smith, says the Hawks are in a ``semi-rebuilding'' mode. But newcomer Lou Williams looks at it a different way. He says the team is ``restructuring, not rebuilding.''
Atlanta has plenty of depth in the backcourt, having brought in Williams, Devin Harris, Anthony Morrow, Kyle Korver, DeShawn Stevenson and rookie John Jenkins. But there's not a lot of size and depth up front.
