Report: Quin Snyder Tops List Of Potential Atlanta Hawks Coaches

Feb 21, 2023, 4:02 PM | Updated: Feb 22, 2023, 11:15 am

ATLANTA – The Atlanta Hawks are in the hunt for a head coach. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, they are expected to look into hiring former Jazz coach Quin Snyder.

Snyder stepped down as Utah’s head coach in June 2022.

After adding All-Star Dejounte Murray in the offseason, Atlanta has started slow. They are currently 29-30 and hold the 8th seed in the Eastern Conference.

The Hawks reportedly dismissed head coach Nate McMillan on Tuesday.

McMillan posted a 99-80 record in a little over two seasons as the head coach of the Hawks.

In eight seasons, Snyder had a 372-264 record as Utah’s head coach.

Quin Snyder Coaching In Paris

It’s a big week for the sport in Paris. The Chicago Bulls and Detroit Pistons have arrived in advance of their game in France’s capital on Thursday night. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver is scheduled to arrive Tuesday and of course, there’s constant talk about Victor Wembanyama — the 19-year-old, 7-foot-3 French phenom who is widely expected to be No. 1 pick in this year’s draft. Odds are, Wembanyama will be there Thursday night for the game, watching guys who he’ll be playing against in about 10 months.

The Bulls landed in Paris on Monday, went right to the practice facility for a workout, and even they found themselves talking about Wembanyama.

“Hopefully, we get to meet him,” Bulls center Nikola Vucevic said.

Snyder saw all the multi-cultural symmetry on Monday, standing in France. Watching guys hoping for a chance to play in Africa, with Americans and Italians and Greeks and more in the gym watching and no shortage of languages getting spoken. Halfway around the world from home, he was right at home, since Snyder is comfortable just about anywhere. He’s spent time in Senegal with Fall, was part of a Russian league title as an assistant for CSKA Moscow a decade ago, coached in college, coached in the minors, coached in the NBA.

“Basketball builds bridges,” Snyder said. “I had a chance to come to the Euroleague, worked in Russia for a year with Ettore Messina. You can learn so much from other people, other countries. Different philosophies from a practical basketball standpoint make you better.”
