General manager Travis Schlenk said the Hawks could look to move up from the 19th pick in the draft.
He also said the team is looking at nine players to take at No. 19. While the Hawks only have one first-round pick this year, they do have two first-round picks for each of the next two drafts. Basically, this isn't really news and it's standard for any front office. Fri, Jun 2, 2017 05:45:00 PM

The Hawks have reportedly picked Warriors' assistant GM Travis Schlenk to become their new general manager.

Schlenk initially started as an assistant coach and video scout for the Dubs back in 2004, and over that time he has risen through the ranks all the way to assistant GM and VP of basketball operations with the Warriors. He's well respected around the league and has learned under the tutelage of the 2014-15 Executive of the Year Bob Myers, so this is a great get for Atlanta.

Hawks owner Tony Ressler confirmed to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Mike Budenholzer will relinquish his duties as team president but will remain as the team's head coach.

Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer will relinquish president's duties, and general manager Wes Wilcox will remain in a high-ranking front office role, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

In management restructuring, the Hawks will start their search for a new head of basketball operations, and Budenholzer will still have a strong voice in player personnel decisions.

Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer might be replaced as team president, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Hawks are in a "period of evaluation," according to a press release, which reportedly includes the removal of GM Wes Wilcox. There's a chance that Wilcox will stay with the organization in a different capacity, and Budenholzer is expected to remain the team's head coach regardless of any other changes.

The Hawks have parted ways with general manager Wes Wilcox, according to ESPN's Jeff Goodman.

The timing of the move is interesting as the Hawks will look to bring back Paul Millsap, who is almost certainly going to waive his player option this summer. Wilcox was with the Hawks since 2012 after he worked with the Cavs.

Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer has been suspended one game by the NBA.

In case you missed it, Budenholzer made contact with an official during Friday's game which warrants an automatic one-game suspension. He will miss Sunday's game vs. the Pacers, but will be back on the sideline for Monday's game vs. the Warriors.

A jury found Mike Budenholzer not guilty in a trial stemming from a DUI arrest in 2013.

Budenholzer admitted he had a glass and a half of wine, but did not feel impaired before talking the wheel. While this news doesn't have any fantasy implications, it's unlikely that Budenholzer will face any league discipline.

Mike Budenholzer has returned to the Hawks after tending to a family emergency, and he will resume his head coaching duties during Sunday's game against the Jazz.

This news doesn't have any fantasy implications, but it's good to see Coach Bud back on the pine.

Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer returned to Atlanta on Friday due to a family emergency.

The Hawks play the Celtics in Boston, so Kenny Atkinson will take over the head coaching duties tonight. We would like to wish Budenholzer and his family all the best.

The Hawks have hired Michael Blackstone as their assistant GM, John Treloar will become the Director of Player Personnel, while Jeff Peterson has been promoted to Director of Scouting.

The Hawks' front office is finally taking shape after the departure of Danny Ferry. In case you missed it, the Hawks hired Wes Wilcox as the new GM, while Mike Budenholzer will serve as the team's President of Basketball Operations in addition to his duties as head coach.

Mike Budenholzer has entered a not guilty plea in his driving under the influence case, according to his attorney.

Budenholzer faces misdemeanor DUI charges from an arrest on August 28, 2013 and could be sentenced to up to a year in jail, as much as a $1,000 fine, a driver’s license suspension, and community services for a first-time offense. While those penalties are unlikely, Budenholzer will likely face a two-game suspension from the NBA if he's found guilty. We'll keep an eye on Budenholzer's situation, but it's unlikely he'll face any jail time.

The Hawks have officially promoted Mike Budenholzer to President of Basketball Operations in addition to his duties as head coach.

Wes Wilcox is the team's new GM, filling the void created by Danny Ferry's recent resignation. Budenholzer guided his team to an impressive 60-22 record this season, best in the Eastern Conference, but he faces a tricky offseason with Paul Millsap and DeMarre Carroll both hitting free agency.

The Hawks traded the No. 15 pick in the 2015 draft for the Wizards' No. 19 pick, in addition to two future second-round picks.

The Wizards selected Kansas SF Kelly Oubre with the No. 15 pick. It's a subtle but savvy move for the Hawks, who have operated with coach Mike Budenholzer as their de facto GM since Danny Ferry resigned the post.

The Pacers and Hawks have reportedly had exploratory talks about swapping their No. 11 and No. 15 pick in the 2015 NBA draft.

Perhaps the Hawks are fearful that they may have to part ways with either DeMarre Carroll or Paul Millsap during free agency, so they may be looking at guys like Frank Kaminsky or Willie Cauley-Stein. The Pacers could potentially trade down and grab someone like Bobby Portis, Kelly Oubre, or Sam Dekker, and it'll be interesting to see how this all plays out on draft day.
