Sources: Blazers Interested in Hawks GM
With the Atlanta Hawks eliminated from the playoffs, changes could be in order on the court and in the front office. General manager Rick Sund, in the last year of his contract, has drawn interest from the Portland Trail Blazers, according to sources.
The Blazers recently asked the Hawks for permission to speak to Sund, but Hawks ownership refused to grant permission until its season ended. Sund agreed with ownership’s stance.
“I don’t want to discuss anything until the end of the season,” Sund said by telephone before Thursday’s season-ending 83-80 loss to the Boston Celtics. “At the end of the season, we’ll address the future.”
