With the recent change in ownership of the team, the Atlanta Hawks are looking to improve their overall infrastructure in the near future, and that extends to an upgrade in facilities. While Philips Arena itself has been a target of speculation, both with a possible renovation or even a brand new building overall, the Hawks are reportedly set to announce a new practice facility on Tuesday afternoon.

More specifics of the announcement will be forthcoming, and the Hawks have issued a press release detailing a "major announcement" from the organization in partnership with Emory Healthcare at 2:00 pm ET. This likely won't move the needle in a big way for the fan base, but it is hard to overemphasize how crucial an upgrade like this can be to the organization, even when it comes to recruiting free agents.

Stay tuned for updates as they become available, but the Tony Ressler-led ownership group has its first major splash when it comes to facilities.
