ATLANTA — 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.
