Jarell Eddie Rumors

All NBA Players

Hammon is not an imposing presence. She stands just 5ft 6in, with hoop earrings and a ponytail, burying herself in a sweatshirt jacket while the other coaches wear shorts and golf shirts. But this isn’t about size or muscles spilling from form-fitting sleeves, but rather a matter of respect. The players Hammon is coaching this July loom like towers above her, yet they gather quietly around when she calls time outs the way they would Gregg Popovich or Doc Rivers. “We don’t look at it as female or anything, she’s the coach and we just listen,” Spurs forward Jarrell Eddie said Sunday afternoon.

The Hawks apparently will not re-sign Jarell Eddie to a second 10-day contract. Eddie said goodbye to teammates following the Hawks’ 98-87 victory over the Suns Friday. He recieved thanks and praise from each player. Paul Millsap told the rookie to “keep busting it.” The Hawks signed Eddie to a 10-day contract out of the NBA Development League on March 5. The guard’s contract was set to expire Saturday. He will likely return to the Austin Spurs. The Hawks have not announced the roster move.
