Mike Budenholzer Rumors
Q. I know (coach Mike Budenholzer) likes to carry a third point guard. Do you expect to sign one? Travis Schlenk: We’ll sign a third point guard. We are deciding to we get a veteran guy or do we get a young guy that we think has upside. Do we bring in a couple guys and let them battle it out? We are going to sign a power forward for sure. We’ll sign a center for sure. Probably sign three more big guys so we end up with six.
Tim Kawakami: Note on Travis Schlenk’s connection to Atlanta’s set up: Schlenk was part of the process when GSWs interviewed Mike Budenholzer in 2011. That was when GSWs ended up hiring Mark Jackson, but Schlenk and Budenholzer had a lot of common ground during that process.
Agravanis is a “draft & stash” player of the Atlanta Hawks and among the people that watched him have a really solid match last night from the seats of “Sinan Erdem” was Mike Budenhozler. How does the Greek forward feel about the presence of the Hawks head coach in the tournament? “It’s something that definitely gives me an extra motivation as well,” he said to Eurohoops. “But right now all I care about is Olympiacos. And how to win the trophy.”
Chris Vivlamore: According to multiple sources, Hawks still in infancy stage of GM search. Still trying to determine attributes of desired candidate.
