ATLANTA: GUARDS: GM Danny Ferry has really talked up JEFF TEAGUE, who will be more of a traditional point guard with Joe Johnson gone . . . DEVIN HARRIS is going to play plenty of minutes, both alongside Teague and off the bench . . . LOU WILLIAMS is a sixth man. He lacks the mentality to run the point and the size to guard opposing twos. His role will be similar to what it was in Philly . . . KYLE KORVER and ANTHONY MORROW are pure shooters who do little else. They can play the three in a pinch, and the hot hand will get the minutes . . . Coach Larry Drew could call on DeSHAWN STEVENSON for the occasional defense-heavy lineup. More likely, he'll rack up the DNP-CDs . . . JOHN JENKINS might be the best shooter in the rookie class, but he'll be buried on the depth chart. FORWARDS: JOSH SMITH rescinded his trade demand, perhaps because he'll now be the focal point of the offense. He was more aggressive on both ends of the floor last year. As long as he resists the urge to float on the perimeter, he should emerge as an All-Star . . . Considering the makeup of this roster, Atlanta will utilize a lot of three-guard lineups. Korver and Morrow can stretch a defense from that third guard/small forward spot, with Stevenson stepping in as an agitator . . . After scoring double-figures six times in April, IVAN JOHNSON was re-signed to once again provide some muscle inside . . . Rookie MIKE SCOTT is polished after five years at Virginia, but doesn't have the athleticism to be an impact player . . . ANTHONY TOLLIVER is a defensive specialist with very little offense to contribute. CENTERS: AL HORFORD will get his wish to play more power forward this season, though he'll remain their primary option at center. He's healthy again and is one of the most consistent bigs in the NBA . . . ZAZA PACHULIA filled in admirably for Horford last year. But it's back to bench duty for the bruising big . . . JOHAN PETRO is French for "12th man."
BROOKLYN: GUARDS: DERON WILLIAMS is healthy and got a much-improved supporting cast to work with. He could re-enter the NBA's best point guard discussion . . . JOE JOHNSON won't have the ballin his hands as much as he used to in Atlanta. It might give him a chance to concentrate on regaining his stroke as one of the NBA's best shooters . . . MARSHON BROOKS will look to settle in as a high-scoring sixth man. He'll be trade bait for most of the season . . . After a disastrous year in Chicago, C.J. WATSON will be asked to spell Williams for a few minutes a night . . . KEITH BOGANS is still kicking around as a second unit glue guy . . . TYSHAWN TAYLOR is an at-times out-of-control combo guard, but the rookie could threaten Watson's role at some point. FORWARDS: KRIS HUMPHRIES' contract was structured to make him easier to trade. He'll rebound and get his put-backs, and the Nets will likely showcase him a bit . . . GERALD WALLACE is slowing down, and now that he's signed his last big NBA contract he might not have much incentive to live up to his 'Crash' nickname. Brooklyn has no choice but to give him heavy minutes considering their investment . . . MIRZA TELETOVIC is a veteran stretch four. Consider him a penniless man's Channing Frye . . . TORNIKE SHENGELIA played himself into a roster spot this summer. He's a mediocre athlete, but a cagey scorer with a high basketball IQ . . . JOSH CHILDRESS and JERRY STACKHOUSE were added in September for depth . . . REGGIE EVANS will flop unconvincingly, punch opponents in the jewels and bring other 'tough guy' intangibles. CENTERS: BROOK LOPEZ had been remarkably durable before last year's foot injury, and he should be fully healed by the start of training camp. He's gifted offensively, but will continue to grab relatively few rebounds and generally get fried defensively. He's also a candidate to be traded midseason if another franchise can stomach his max contract . . . As insurance, former Wizards big man ANDRAY BLATCHE was brought in. He could be the team's best interior defender, able to play either the four or five spot.

*Hawks-Nets Preview* ====================

Atlanta (36-29) at Brooklyn (38-27), 8:00 p.m. EDT

Brooklyn Nets guard Joe Johnson looks set to return for another meeting with his former team.

The Atlanta Hawks just avenged two recent losses and are looking to do the same to Brooklyn.

These teams are in contention for home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs, and the Nets can take a key step towards that goal Sunday night if they hand the visiting Hawks a sixth straight road defeat.

Johnson sat out Tuesday's 108-98 home win over New Orleans with a nagging bruised left heel. He returned to practice Thursday and should start Sunday.

Coach P.J. Carlesimo gave his team Wednesday and Friday off with four days between games. The Nets (38-27) leave immediately after this contest to begin an eight-game trip Monday in Detroit.

"The four days are really big not just for Joe but for all our guys," Carlesimo said.

The Nets are in fourth place in the Eastern Conference, one game behind Atlantic Division-leading New York. The Hawks (36-29) are tied for fifth with Chicago, two games behind Brooklyn.

Johnson is averaging only 13.7 points on 33.3 percent shooting against the Hawks this season, with the Nets taking two of three meetings. The most recent one was Brooklyn's 93-80 road victory last Saturday, as Atlanta matched its fourth-lowest point total of the season.

"We're going to see a totally different Atlanta game I'm sure, I'm afraid, Sunday night than we saw down in Atlanta," Carlesimo said.

The Hawks have won consecutive home games after a three-game slide. They were without Josh Smith and Jeff Teague in Wednesday's 96-92 win over the Lakers and both returned with different results in Friday's 107-94 victory over Phoenix.

Smith had 17 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists after being out with a sprained knee, just missing his fourth career triple-double.

"All I can do is distribute the ball and hopefully they knock the basket down," Smith said. "It's OK. I'll take the win over the triple-double any day."

Teague made 2 of 10 shots for eight points and four assists in 23 minutes off the bench. Former Nets guard Devin Harris has totaled 32 points over two straight starts in place of him.

"We're monitoring it very close," coach Larry Drew said Friday. "I had in my mind kind of the number of minutes I did want to play him (Teague) so I decided to go with Devin."

Atlanta avenged earlier defeats this month to Los Angeles and Phoenix, as they try to gain a season series split with Brooklyn.

How healthy Teague is could help determine this outcome. He had seven points and no assists last weekend against the Nets after averaging 24.5 points and 10.5 assists in two January meetings.

Brooklyn point guard Deron Williams has averaged 24.0 points and 13.0 assists while turning in consecutive double-doubles.

"He's managing the game very well," Carlesimo said. "He's also being a lot more vocal at practices, at timeouts and before and after games. It's a good thing."

Williams has had trouble at times defending Teague, whose career-high 28 points keyed the Hawks' 109-95 victory over the Nets on Jan. 16. Harris is averaging 17.5 points in two 2012-13 starts versus the Nets.
