Hawks Coach Says Player Rapport Strong
The support of Hawks players helped Larry Drew get the job as head coach in 2010.
As Drew awaits word from the team if it will pick up his contract option for next season, he cites his relationship with players as his strong suit.
“That’s something I take a lot of pride in and spent a lot of time talking about and trying to work on,” he said. “Player relationships are so important on this level, how you deal with your best player all the way down to the guy who might not even dress out during games. I thought I did a good job with that. I thought my staff did a good job with that.”
