Atlanta Hawks Chief Executive Officer Steve Koonin issued an apology to players, employees and fans today in the wake of racially insensitive remarks made by General Manager Danny Ferry and majority owner Bruce Levenson.
A racially charged comment uttered by Atlanta Hawks General Manager Danny Ferry regarding Luol Deng seems to trace back to the Cavaliers organization, according to the scouting report obtained Friday by the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
The Cavaliers announced the signing of forward Shawn Marion on Tuesday after he agreed to join the team last month. Terms of the deal were not released, but it’s believed to be a one-year deal for the league minimum.
INDEPENDENCE: When he introduced Kevin Love to Cleveland on Tuesday, Cavs General Manager David Griffin called it a culmination of 18 months of trade negotiations. Truthfully, however, the genesis to this moment dates back even further, to the bus rides and countless locker room discussions at the 2012 London Olympics.
