Morris works out for Hawks

ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Woodson added two
assistant coaches and conducted workouts for two free-agent centers
on Wednesday.
Woodson, who signed a two-year extension last month to remain
the Hawks coach, added Jim Todd and Tyrone Hill to his staff.
Meanwhile, Woodson worked out two restricted free-agent centers
with Georgia connections, Randolph Morris and Kwame Brown, on
Wednesday morning.
Hawks spokesman Arthur Triche confirmed Morris, from Landmark
Christian and the University of Kentucky, and Glynn Academy's Brown
worked out for Woodson, who is seeking inside help for starting
center Al Horford and backups Zaza Pachulia and Solomon Jones.
Brown (6-11, 270) was the first pick of the 2001 draft.
Brown averaged 4.8 points and 4.9 rebounds for the Los Angeles
Lakers and Memphis Grizzlies last season, his seventh in the
league. He spent his first four seasons with Washington.
Morris (6-11, 260) spent the last two years with the New York
Knicks. He averaged 3.1 points and 2.1 rebounds in 18 games,
including two starts, last season.
Todd spend last season in Milwaukee as an assistant under Larry
Krystkowiak. He previously was an assistant for three years in
Toronto after working as an assistant for Chris Ford in Milwaukee
and the Los Angeles Clippers.
Hill, who played for five NBA teams for 14 years, was named a
full-time assistant after working last season as a volunteer
assistant.
Hill, a first-round pick by Golden State in 1990, also played in
Cleveland, Milwaukee, Philadelphia and Miami.
Todd and Hill replace David Fizdale and Herb Brown.
Larry Drew and Bob Bender will return for their fifth seasons on
the staff.
