The Atlanta Hawks shuffled around their front office structure after being eliminated from the playoffs in the first round by the Wizards. Coach Mike Budenholzer relinquished his role as vice president of basketball operations to focus on coaching, while general manager Wes Wilcox took a smaller role as an advisor to ownership.
That leaves the Hawks needing to fill their biggest front office roles with just over a month until the NBA Draft and free agency soon after. The Hawks have been connected to some experienced general managers like David Griffin from the Cavs and Joe Dumars, along with other front office personnel around the league, but the latest report from The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski links the Hawks to a pair of former players and current TV analysts.
ESPN’s Chauncey Billups and Turner’s Brent Barry are both named as two candidates the Hawks plan on speaking with for their opening by Woj.
