All-Star in the jersey of the Hawks in 2015 and one of the best all-time shooters (5th most prolific shooter in history with 2,450 award-winning shots in career), Kyle Korver takes advantage of the reshuffle of the front office of Atlanta to take on a bigger role.
Not only will he continue to keep an eye on the development aspect, but above all he will be able to give his point of view in the franchise’s choices in terms of exchanges and player management. Whereas Travis Schlenk is no longer part of the Hawks organization chart at all according to The Athleticit is therefore Fields and Korver who now have the responsibility of straightening the franchise, also in the company of Nick Ressler (the son of owner Tony Ressler) who would weigh a lot in the various discussions.
An interesting dynamic to say the least when you know that the NBA Trade Deadline is just a month away and that movements are expected in Atlanta (especially on the John Collins file).
The Hawks currently have a record of 19 wins and 22 losses, synonymous with ninth place in the East. Results far from the ambitions of the franchise after the transfer of Dejounte Murray last summer…
