Hawks will be seeking new general manager

They have a team lovingly built by GM-in-exile Danny Ferry, and it has been expertly coached — until the playoffs, when expertise took a hike — by Mike Budenholzer, who has also been acting as interim GM throughout Ferry’s protracted leave of absence.

Ferry built the best team in franchise history, although “builder” isn’t the B-word anyone uses to describe his situation. The word invariably used is “baggage.” It’s hard to imagine new owners choosing to keep someone whose image, if not his basketball acumen, has been besmirched. These being the Hawks, they might never find a GM better than the one they’re about to dump.

These being the Hawks, the organization has turned backflips in the effort to distance itself from Ferry, even to the laughable extent of nominating Budenholzer for NBA executive of the year.

New Falcons stadium

Another push for PSLs

The Atlanta Falcons, who previously set prices of $10,000 to $45,000 for personal seat licenses on club seats in their new stadium, plan to unveil sharply lower prices Tuesday for the rest of the building.

The stadium’s 60,000-plus non-club seats will carry PSLs — one-time fees for the right to buy season tickets — ranging from $500 to $5,500, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has learned.
