The Atlanta Hawks have created uncertainty at the wing, as Joe Johnson and Marvin Williams were traded in the offseason. Both Johnson and Williams are two of the bigger wing players in the NBA.

Josh Smith sees their lack of size as the biggest challenge heading into the season.

"We were pretty good defensively the last couple of years," said Smith. "We’ve been pretty solid. We might just be a little undersized. We were undersized before but are very undersized now. But that shouldn’t be an issue. I think that we have a lot of feisty and competitive people on this team that hate to lose. I think that will outweigh the so-called decreases that this team has."
