Hawks fire Lloyd Pierce

Crazy. They have definitely underachieved this year considering they were supposed to be a playoff squad. They have a bunch of roster clean up to do but they have a lot of talent.
Lloyd Pierce didn't bring all those overpriced mediocre players. Somebody has to be sacrificed I guess.
A losing team's first move, more than likely, is always the firing of the head coach/manager. It's the easiest way to change things around and get a boost for a short duration.


Hall of Famer
They’ve been killing it under Nate. Would love to get him this summer if ATL doesn’t lock him up.
I would put Nate on the short list for GOOD options for replacing Walton, but I fear Monte will do what most GM's do and go with what he knows.... enter De'Antoni. (who I not have on my short list)
