USA TODAY Sports

Darvin Ham is the newest edition of Mike Budenholzer's staff in Atlanta.

The Atlanta Hawks announced the addition of Darvin Ham to Mike Budenholzer's first coaching staff in a press release on Saturday. Ham spent last season as an assistant with the Lakers and is a former head coach of the Albuquerque Thunderbirds in the D-League. He spent the 2002-03 season as a forward for the Hawks where he played in 75 games.

Prior to his stint with the Lakers, Ham was the head coach of the New Mexico Thunderbirds of the NBA Development League in 2010-11 and an assistant coach with the Thunderbirds from 2008-10. As a player, the eight-year veteran appeared in 417 career games (45 starts) with Denver, Indiana, Washington, Milwaukee, Atlanta and Detroit, averaging 2.7 points and 2.3 rebounds in 12.4 minutes (.518 FG%). He also played in 55 postseason games (with the Bucks and Pistons; 11 starts), putting up 1.3 points and 1.2 rebounds in 7.4 minutes (.569 FG%), starting 11 times.

There was no indication as to what Ham's role might be with the Hawks. He began last season as part of Mike Brown's staff in Los Angeles and then remained with the team after Mike D'Antoni took over.
