General manager Danny Ferry said the Hawks need to add depth and talent.
There are few players who were as important as Al Horford (pectoral) just because of the lack of depth behind him. The Hawks struggled to find a solution at center all season, so that may be an area they'll address in the early going of free agency. Jun 2 - 10:16 AM

Hawks hired Mike Budenholzer as their head coach.

Budenholzer has been with the Spurs for the last 18 years. He's spent 16 of those seasons as an assistant to Gregg Popovich, and has spent the last five as Pop's top assistant. After a lot of flirtation around the league, he finally leaves the nest to join former Spurs exec and current Hawks GM Danny Ferry. They'll try to build San Antonio East in Atlanta. It's a hire the Hawks' fan base should be excited about.

The Hakws are reportedly engaged in serious talks with Spurs assistant Mike Budenholzer to be their next head coach.

The Spurs have nine days off until the Finals begin. During that time, they've given permission for Budenholzer to negotiate a contract with old friend Danny Ferry -- who is now the GM of the Hawks. Budenholzer, Gregg Popovich's right-hand man, was also drawing interest from the Sixers and Pistons.

"Many league insiders" believe current Spurs assistant Mike Budenholzer will wind up with the Hawks head coaching job.

Budenholzer's name is getting to be scorching hot in coaching circles and we would be shocked if he's not a head coach next season. He's been very important on Gregg Popovich's bench, but he deserves a shot at running his own team.

The Hawks interviewed Stan Van Gundy and Mike Budenholzer for their still-vacant head-coaching position, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Van Gundy and Budenholzer would the second and third candidates to interview with Hawks GM Danny Ferry along with Nate McMillan. Yahoo! Sports reported previously that Ferry is also interested in hiring CSKA Moscow coach Ettore Messina. It's unknown whether the Hawks have interviewed Messina, but the Journal-Constitution reported that Ferry has interviewed other unknown candidates. At this point, it seems clear that Ferry is casting a wide net but is playing his cards very close to the vest.

The Hawks are interested in making Ettore Messina their head coach, according to Yahoo! Sports.

Messina is the coach of CSKA Moscow and has some street cred among NBA GMs. In fact, when Hawks GM Danny Ferry was in Cleveland, he had his coach Mike Brown travel overseas to study Messina's offense. The Hawks have also interviewed Nate McMillan this week and they're looking to replace Larry Drew.

Hawks president Danny Ferry wouldn't speculate on the future of coach Larry Drew or Josh Smith on Saturday afternoon.

Ferry said he would "take some time" to evaluate the season and what the offseason might hold before making any player or coaching decisions. Drew remains under contract but it's unclear if he'll be part of Ferry's rebuilding effort, which includes boat loads of cap space this summer. It's unlikely that space will be devoted to Smith, who appears determined to test free agency in hopes of getting a max contract.

The Spurs have reportedly reached agreement with former Cavs GM Danny Ferry to return to their front office.

Ferry, who interviewed with Portland and New Jersey after being fired by the Cavs, has a great relationship with the Spurs, Gregg Popovich and R.C. Buford, and will become the team's director of basketball operations after Dell Demps left to become GM of the Hornets.

With Ray Allen and Michael Redd now off the board, we expect the Cavs to go after the next two best shooting guards available.

They would be Larry Hughes and Bobby Simmons, and since the Wizards have been pretty adamant about not losing Hughes, it seems likely that Simmons could end up alongside LeBron. However, the Akron Beacon-Jounal is reporting that Hughes hasn't exactly been excited by initial talks with the Wizards, so we'll have to see what happens.

With the impending hiring of Danny Ferry as GM (which will be announced later today in a press conference), Cleveland is no longer interested in having Larry Brown be the president of basketball operations.

This makes the whole coaching the Knicks think looking better and better for Brown.

Danny Ferry appears to be close to signing on as the general manager of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

He's currently in charge of basketball operations with the Spurs and he would be reunited with coach Mike Brown in Cleveland, as Brown coached with the Spurs for three years. A rookie head coach (Brown), a rookie GM (Ferry), a new owner (Dan Gilbert) not from Cleveland and a possible new President of Basketball Operations (Larry Brown) commuting from Philly...What's not to love?

Pacers officially released Danny Ferry on Monday, ending his 13-year playing career.

Ferry, 36, is already working in the Spurs' front office.
Tue, Sep 30, 2003 09:50:00 AM

Danny Ferry has decided to retire and will rejoin the Spurs as director of basketball operations.

Ferry won't officially announce his retirement for some time, so the Pacers still could trade his contract to another team.

Pacers acquired forward Danny Ferry from the Spurs for guard Ron Mercer.

The 36-year-old Ferry is likely to retire this summer.

With David Robinson out, Danny Ferry got the start at center tonight and had six points and 10 rebounds

It's not so surprising that Ferry got the start, but that he played 31 minutes to Malik Rose's 19 was quite a shock.
