Game Preview:

Not much in the way of story lines for either team as both Atlanta and Charlotte prepare for their home and home preseason series. For the Hawks, most of the focus centers on their backcourt situation with guys like veteran Jerry Stackhouse and young players Donald Sloan and Brad Wanamaker all in the running for a roster spot.

For Charlotte, the team looks much different than it did at the start of last season with Gerald Wallace in Portland and Stephen Jackson in Milwaukee. Coach Paul Silas will now try to mold this team around young players like D.J. Augustine, Kemba Walker and Tyrus Thomas.
