The Atlanta Hawks have reportedly interviewed former Orlando Magic head coach Stan Van Gundy and current San Antonio Spurs assistant Mike Budenholzer for their head coaching job.

Per a report by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Atlanta Hawks have officially interviewed former Orlando Magic head coach Stan Van Gundy and also met with current San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Mike Budenholzer. This news comes on the heels of last night's Adrian Wojnarowski report that Ferry was strongly considering Euroleague legend Ettore Messina among his top candidates.

As expected, Ferry and the Hawks have been pretty tight lipped about their coaching shortlist. To date the names that have managed to leak out include Van Gundy, Nate McMillan, Budenholzer and now Messina whom Ferry scouted at the Euroleague Final Four.

Van Gundy is thought by most to be a long shot at best for the Hawks to land as he expected to wait another season before returning to the sidelines. Budenholzer is a candidate for other job openings and is also thought to be the eventual successor to Gregg Popovich in San Antonio.

At this point we aren't sure when Ferry might make a final decision but he seems to be moving quickly of late through a number of candidates.
