The Atlanta Hawks currently have 17 players under contract.

That is a problem.

The NBA mandates that teams can only keep 15 players on the roster when the season begins and, well, the Hawks have to make a move before the 2016-2017 campaign starts. That is the backdrop of today's episode of the Locked on Hawks podcast and we outline all of the potential ways in which Atlanta can cut down the roster to the magic number before the end of October arrives.
