The 2014-2015 season is over for the Atlanta Hawks, but one of the bigger story lines from the stretch run will reemerge next week. According to a report from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Thabo Sefolosha and Pero Antic will appear in court in New York on Tuesday, June 16 at 9:00 am ET to face charges stemming from the controversial nightclub incident in early April.

Sefolosha, who missed the remainder of the season after suffering a broken fibula in the custody of the NYPD, will face counts of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, while Antic has been charged with harassment and disorderly conduct in his own right.  The well-publicized incident took place outside of the 1OAK night club on April 8, and video of the arrest can be seen here.

Both players have been reluctant to expand on the incident in great detail pending a potential trial, though both have expressed their innocence of the charges. Antic enters the offseason as a restricted free agent, while Sefolosha (who is recovering from surgery) will begin the second season of a multi-year contract in 2015-2016.

Stay tuned throughout the process for updates in this space.
