Report: Utah Jazz interested in hiring Hawks assistant Darvin Ham

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

There is a report circulating that current Atlanta Hawks assistant coach Darvin Ham could be pursued by Quin Snyder and the Utah Jazz.

In the aftermath of former Atlanta Hawks assistant coach Quin Snyder being hired as the head coach of the Utah Jazz, there have been rumblings about who would take his place on the bench alongside Mike Budenholzer. However, there is now a report circulating that reflects the possibility that Snyder could poach a high-profile assistant from Atlanta in the form of Darvin Ham.

Jody Genessy of the Deseret News brings the latest:

Recently, the 40-year-old Ham was named as Atlanta's head coach for the Las Vegas Summer League, and he would seemingly be in line for a bump in prominence in the absence of Snyder. However, a move to potentially be an associate head coach would be a nice promotion for Darvin, and that brings the focus of the report into a more narrow spectrum.

It remains to be seen whether the Hawks can entice Darvin Ham to stay, or even if Snyder and the Jazz have official interest, but there are some real question marks for next season's coaching staff.
