John Treloar Rumors
Members of current Hawks management have a previous relationship with the BayHawks. Wilcox helped create and run the BayHawks while he worked for the Cavaliers. The BayHawks were a multi-affiliated franchise at their start. John Treloar, the Hawks current director of player personnel, served as the coach of the BayHawks for the first two seasons. Wilcox helped run the BayHawks for a third season before the Cavaliers bought the D-League franchise in Canton. Wilcox served as that franchise’s first general manager until he joined the Hawks as assistant general manager in 2012.
The Hawks are expanding their regional scouting network. West coast scouting was previously part of the responsibility of John Treloar, the team’s director of player personnel. The hire of Midgley will allow Treloar to play a larger role with the Hawks.
The Hawks announced several additions and promotions to their restructured basketball operations staff on Friday. The team named Michael Blackstone as Assistant General Manager, John Treloar as Director of Player Personnel and Malik Rose at Manager of Basketball Operations. Those three hires were reported by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution in August.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution previously reported the Hawks hiring of Michael Blackstone as assistant general manager and John Treloar as director of player personnel. None of the hirings have been announced by the team.
Director of Player Personnel John Treloar, who ran most of the basketball operation for former Suns General Manager Lance Blanks, also will leave after the June 25 NBA draft to become the associate head coach at Louisiana State, where he was an assistant coach from 2004-08. Treloar has scouted prospects and organized draft workouts for the Suns since Ryan McDonough became general manager in 2013, the same time assistant GM Pat Connelly was hired.
The Phoenix Suns today announced a series of moves within the team’s basketball operations department. Pat Connelly has been named to the role of Assistant General Manager and Trevor Bukstein has been promoted to Assistant General Manager. Ronnie Lester has been named a scout and Emilio Kovacic has been named International Scouting Consultant. John Treloar will remain the team’s Director of Player Personnel; John Shumate and Bubba Burrage remain scouts.
