Lloyd Pierce Front Runner in Hawks Coaching Search

Atlanta Hawks Closing in on Hiring Longtime Assistant as Next Head Coach

It seems like the Atlanta Hawks have almost found their new head coach.

While the Atlanta Hawks and current head coach Mike Budenholzer are extremely interested in parting ways, Philadelphia 76ers assistant coach Lloyd Pierce seems to have jumped ahead as the front runner. Budenholzer has already met with the Phoenix Suns this offseason and is scheduled to meet with the Milwaukee Bucks among other teams with interest of filling a new team’s head coaching vacancy.

As the Hawks look to accelerate their rebuild, Pierce has been said to have a “strong chance” at claiming the job. Aside from the Sixers, the longtime NBA assistant has spent time with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Golden State Warriors, and Memphis Grizzlies.¬†Pierce has also spent four years as an assistant at his alma mater Santa Clara, where he at one point was collegiate teammates with Steve Nash.

According to sources, Pierce’s strong background in player development has pushed him as a favourite within the Hawks organization.
