The Atlanta Hawks will apparently only be searching for one assistant coach this summer. Darvin Ham was a candidate to join former Hawks assistant Quin Snyder in Utah but he will be staying in Atlanta per a report by Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune.
Darvin Ham won't be coming to Utah as an assistant. He will be staying in Atlanta— Tony Jones (@Tjonessltrib) June 17, 2014
Ham seems like a good bet to move into Snyder's seat next to head coach Mike Budenholzer on the Hawks' bench. It had been rumored that he had an offer for a similar role on Snyder's bench in Utah. Atlanta's coaching staff has drawn rave reviews from around the league in regards to player development. Its not surprising that other teams have come calling with job offers of their own.
If the report is true it is good news for the Hawks who will keep a key piece of their staff in Ham and can continue to build on the continuity that was put in place last season.
