Mike Budenholzer no longer Hawks president; Wes Wilcox reassigned

Mike Budenholzer

The Atlanta Hawks have restructured their front office as promised, though Wes Wilcox will remain with the team.

According to The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer is relinquishing his duties as the team’s president, though he will remain as head coach. Budenholzer will still have a say on personnel matters.

Wilcox, who just completed his second season as the team’s GM, will no longer operate as GM but will remain in the team’s front office.

The Hawks were one of the biggest surprises in the NBA three seasons ago when they went 60-22, but they’ve been trending downwards since then. This season they went 43-39 and grabbed the fifth spot in the Eastern Conference, but lost in the first round of the playoffs. The next head of basketball operations for the team will have multiple draft picks to try and rebuild with.
