Report: Hawks Part Ways With GM Wes Wilcox

MAY 3, 2017 3:54 PM

The Atlanta Hawks have parted ways with Wes Wilcox.

Wilcox had been general manager of the team, working closely with Mike Budenholzer.

Wilcox joined the Hawks in 2012 after previously working with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Wilcox was promoted to GM in 2015.

The Hawks disciplined Wilcox in January after he made a racial remark at an event for season ticket holders.

The Hawks face another key offseason in which the direction of their franchise will largely be determined by the free agency of Paul Millsap.

The Hawks are denying the report, releasing the following statement to Chris Vivlamore: "There are no changes to report at this time. Any reports indicating otherwise are inaccurate."

Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports that decisions are still being made about Wilcox's future. Budenholzer could drop his duties as president while remaining as head coach.


MY NOTE:  Is it a coincidence that rumors about the GM who signed Dwight Howard and lost Horford is being fired as rumors of Dwight Howard being shopped for a box of day-old Krispy Kremes are flying around the internet?  Only if you believe in them.  I prefer Cause and Effect, however subtle and unrecognized at the time.
