Ohm Youngmisuk: Kyle Korver says he doesn’t hold a grudge against Matthew Dellavedova, who ended Korver’s year in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals last postseason when the Cavs point guard dove for a loose ball and rolled into Korver’s ankle. Korver underwent surgery to repair the ankle last offseason. “You can’t acknowledge it or it is a thing,” Korver said when asked how to guard against reacting if things get chippy with Dellavedova this series. “You just play. I don’t think there is any kind of ill will.”

Posted: 4:22 p.m. Monday, April 18, 2016 Kyle Korver and Kenny Atkinson met for coffee in the summer of 2013. Korver was an unrestricted free agent and there were big questions facing the Hawks in that offseason. The roster was about to undergo a major change with more than half the players free agents. A head coaching change was imminent. The assistant staff would be reconstructed with a new leader. Atkinson told Korver he was going to stay on as an assistant coach. “I didn’t know if I was coming back,” Korver said Monday. “That is something as a free agent, you don’t know what the team is going to be, what the coaching staff was going to look like. But he said he was going to be back. And that was a starting place for me. Kenny is going to be here? Things are going to be OK.” Korver re-signed with the Hawks.
“He has been awesome for us here in Atlanta,” Korver said. “I think our player development has been second to none the last four years. I think it has been amazing watching guys develop and grow and Kenny leads that.” The Hawks did not make Atkinson available to the media on Monday, honoring a request from the Nets that he not speak until he is formally introduced in Brooklyn following the Hawks’ postseason run.
