Ferry moves to next big step in Hawks rebuilding

ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Hawks are ready to take another important step in their rebuilding process.

General manager Danny Ferry has already gutted the roster and brought in a new coach. Now, it's on to the draft Thursday night, with the biggest step of all - free agency - just around the corner.

Ferry said in a recent interviewr that "the draft is essential in team building, especially within this new (collective bargaining agreement)."

The Hawks have back-to-back selections in the opening round - Nos. 17 and 18 - and two more choices in the second round at 47th and 50th. Naturally, there's a lot of talk about Atlanta packaging that plethora of picks to move up, or perhaps move down and pick up some additional choices for the future.
