The tallest NBA player under contract for next season is the 7-foot-2 Roy Hibbert.

The Hawks are going to do one better.

Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports:

Atlanta drafted Tavares last year, and he spent last season in Spain. I wouldn’t count on much from him immediately, but he’s a nice developmental piece.

Tiago Splitter, acquired in a trade with the Spurs, is the Hawks’ most immediately significant center acquisition of the offseason.
