Hawks given permission to talk with Darvin Ham about joining coaching staff

USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers have given the Atlanta Hawks permission to speak with Darvin Ham about joining the team's coaching staff.

The NBA Finals begin on Thursday and new Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer will be in his familiar spot next to Gregg Popovich on the San Antonio bench. In the meantime, the Hawks have begun the process for building Budenholzer's coaching staff for next season. L.A. Daily News' Mark Medina reports that the Lakers have given Atlanta and Charlotte permission to speak with assistant coach Darvin Ham.

Ham played eight seasons in the NBA and spent the 2002-2003 season with the Hawks. He has spent time in the D-League where he was an assistant in Albuquerque and as a head coach in New Mexico. Ham was a part of Mike Brown's staff in Los Angeles and remained on staff after Mike D'Antoni took over. Ham spent most of this season working in player development and was not one of the Lakers' lead assistants. He could potentially see a much more expanded role in Atlanta or in Charlotte.
