There are probably better places to take an important phone call. When Jeff Teague’s phone rang Saturday – while on a Harry Potter themed amusement park ride in Orlando – he answered. Hawks general manager Danny Ferry was calling with news that the team intended to match the four-year, $32 million offer sheet from the Bucks. Teague would remain in Atlanta. “He said they were going to match the offer and we’re glad to have you back,” Teague told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I held on a little bit, got off the ride and we started talking a little bit more.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“Atlanta is my home,” Pachulia said. “There is no question about it. The franchise has been great to me over the past eight years from the owners to the front office, coaches and of course the fans. “But I also understand the situation because the [front office] has so many things to do this summer. Danny Ferry has so much work to do. Obviously being somewhat of a new general manager here and hiring a new head coach (Mike Budenholzer). Now they have to fill out the team with players. There are so many roster spots available, so I understand the business side of it.” HoopsWorld

The Hawks have back-to-back selections in the opening round - Nos. 17 and 18 - and two more choices in the second round at 47th and 50th. Naturally, there's a lot of talk about Atlanta packaging that plethora of picks to move up, or perhaps move down and pick up some additional choices for the future. "Those discussions have and will obviously continue to be there between now and the draft,'' Ferry said. "We'll weigh the opportunities, look at the players available in front of us and behind us with the goal of building a team for the short term and the long term. The draft really helps this, especially when you look at the long term.'' SI.com
