HoopsHype Bruce Levenson rumors
Here is the story Tim Tucker and I did on the Hawks current ownership situation that appeared in Sunday’s print edition of the AJC. I think you will find some details that haven’t previously been reported. One year later, the Hawks’ ownership group considers itself fortunate that its deal to sell a majority stake in the team to a Los Angeles businessman fell through. “Extremely” fortunate, Bruce Levenson said. “Extremely.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Among the questions Ferry asked before accepting the job, according to Levenson: “One, were we committed to building a championship organization here? And two, did we have our act together in terms of how we manage this business from an ownership perspective? “There is no way Danny Ferry comes here,” Levenson said, “if, through his due diligence, he didn’t determine that was the case.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Hawks co-owner Bruce Levenson said Monday that Ferry has the right character and experience to take over a team which lost to Boston in the first round of this year's playoffs after making it to the second round three straight years. "Over the past nine years Danny Ferry has earned tremendous respect as a front office executive in the NBA," Levenson said. SI.com
