Jorge Sierra at HoopsHype.com reports the Hawks are close to signing free agent center Etan Thomas. Hawks assistant general manager Dave Pendergraft confirmed the team had Thomas in for a workout but said Thomas is one of a handful of free agents the Hawks are considering.

Hes on a very, very short list, Pendergraft said. We were pleased with the workout.

Hawks really doing the smart thing and adding some size this off-season but end of the bench players like Thomas and Powell really aren't going to take them very far.

Like I said in the other thread, Thomas isn't some low-post scorer which is what the Hawks need. He's a decent back-up C, but not much more than that. Really doesn't help out their team that much.

We need to get rid of Josh Smith and get a true center like Nene or Biedrins.

Nene isn't exactly a true center either.

Neither is Biedrins.

You are just about the worst Hawks fan I've ever seen. That team is worst than what you you guys currently got, Smith offers sooooo much more than both Beidrens and Nene.

A fellow Harlemite.

But he hasn't played in more than 26 games since the '07-'08 season.

Glad to see he's getting a paycheck though.

Wow, I'm not a Hawks fan, and I don't like Smith (attempted between the legs dunk in 09 playoffs), but seriously, Smith is a great PF and is the 2nd best defender behind Dwight IMO.

Sure Smith is a good player but Horford would dominate in the 4 spot. Horford is playing against alot bigger players yet still is a All-star. Bynum for Smith would be perfect. I love Smith but Horford is the better player and I'd rather see Horford stay.

Wow somebody actually made a thread about Etan Thomas possibly signing with the Hawks!

You know it's the end of summer when he headlines a thread, not to pitiful.

As long as they have Zaza, I don't see the need for Etan Thomas. Unless, the hawks are considering moving Horford to his more preferable position.

Exactly, if they do that this is pretty good signing for the bench
