Hawks C Tiago Splitter plans to be ready for training camp
But the Hawks center says he’ll be healthy by training camp.
Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
Spoke to Tiago Splitter from Rio. He still plans to be ready for start of training camp after hip surgery. Will post story tomorrow.— Chris Vivlamore (@CVivlamoreAJC) August 14, 2016
Splitter didn’t have time to make much of an impact last season, when Atlanta acquired him to serve as a change-of-pace to Al Horford at center. With the bigger and strong Dwight Howard now at center, Splitter is more redundant.
Splitter can still contribute off the bench – if he’s moving well enough. At age 31 and coming off such a major injury, that’s in question.
