Hawks To Offer Head Coaching Job To Lloyd Pierce

Hawks To Offer Head Coaching Job To Lloyd Pierce

On Friday, just two days after the Philadelphia 76ers were eliminated from the NBA Playoffs, the Atlanta Hawks reached an agreement with Pierce (an assistant with Philadelphia) to make him the next head coach.

Pierce has been on Brett Brown's staff in Philadelphia the past five seasons.

Nothing is official yet, but expect the Hawks to name Pierce as their head coach in the coming days.

Lloyd Pierce has been on the Hawks' radar awhile, but it now appears that the Sixers' lead assistant is the favorite for the job.

Town & Country uninvites Monica Lewinsky to event that Bill Clinton is attending
Clinton was impeached for lying under oath and obstructing justice, but was later acquitted in another Senate trial. Clinton apparently confirmed he would go to an event hosted by Town & Country magazine, NBC News reported .

The 42-year-old also has spent time with the Memphis Grizzlies, Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers in his 11 years as an National Basketball Association assistant.

In many ways, it's surprising that it took this long for Pierce to get consideration for a head coaching gig. "I have great respect for Travis and strong belief in his plan to bring a championship to the city of Atlanta".

The Hawks' under-25 core of guard Dennis Schroder, small forward Taurean Prince, power forward John Collins and small forward DeAndre' Bembry should expand greatly this summer, with Atlanta now owning three first-round selections and four choices in the first 33 picks. Pierce's one-year stint at Golden State coincided with current Hawks general manager Travis Schlenk's time with the team. He played four seasons with two-time NBA MVP Steve Nash a teammate. Pierce garnered the Hawks' interest ever since Budenholzer left. The Hawks hit bottom after the team that won 60 games only three years ago gradually lost such starters as Al Horford, Paul Millsap and Jeff Teague. As both a former player and somebody whose coaching career has been focused on player development, Pierce should fit well with a rebuilding roster.
