more motivating if anything

Hawks general manager Travis Schlenk on Thursday described coach Mike Budenholzer’s exit as ”harmonious” and ”as mutual as parting can be.”

Schlenk also said the decision Youth Markus Wheaton Jersey , finalized and announced late Wednesday , came after many discussions with Budenholzer and was not based on just one factor.

”It’s not one thing,” Schlenk said. ”It was just the course of several conversations we just felt like this was best for him and his career and the right time for the Hawks for where we are.”

Added Schlenk: ”It was kind of we felt the right time for both of us to go separate directions. It wasn’t negative on either side. It was just time for both of us to move forward.”

Budenholzer helped to pave his path out of Atlanta by expressing interest in coaching other teams.

Schlenk said he still believed at the end of the season, when the Hawks finished with the worst record in the Eastern Conference, that Budenholzer would remain the team’s coach. Then Budenholzer received permission to interview with the Phoenix Suns and New York Knicks .

Budenholzer withdrew his name from consideration with the Suns and remains a candidate with the Knicks.

With Budenholzer seeking employment from at least two other teams, it was increasingly difficult for the Hawks to serve as the coach’s safety net.

The Hawks, with the blessing of majority owner Tony Ressler, finally decided it was best to find a new coach. The decision came even though ending the relationship with Budenholzer, who had two years remaining on his contract, ended the team’s chance to receive compensation if he is hired by another team.

”Obviously Tony is involved in all the decisions,” Schlenk said. ”We made the decision that was best for us instead of waiting and seeing what might happen. But certainly we had his blessing.”

Schlenk said he will look for a new coach who can work with a young, rebuilding team.

”One of the things that’s most important is having a coach who’s going to connect with our young players, continue to develop our young players Roquan Smith Jersey Elite , so that’s going to be a big part of it,” he said.

Budenholzer was 213-192 in the regular season and 17-22 in the playoffs in five seasons with Atlanta. The Hawks were an Eastern Conference-worst 24-58 this season, ending the team’s streak of 10 consecutive playoff appearances.

The high point in Budenholzer’s five years with the Hawks came in the 2014-15 season, when the Hawks set a franchise record with 60 wins. He was named NBA coach of the year after the Hawks’ first appearance in the Eastern Conference finals.

Budenholzer was given more authority with the title of president of basketball operations, but he gave up that position when Schlenk was hired as general manager in 2017. Schlenk said the two maintained a positive relationship.

Schlenk said he already had a list of potential candidates to replace Budenholzer and will consider candidates with experience as a head coach or just as an assistant.

Schlenk said he hopes to have the new coach hired before the NBA draft on June 21, and ”ideally” before the team conducts workouts with draft prospects.

The Hawks have a chance to obtain the No. 1 overall pick when the NBA draft lottery is held on May 15 in Chicago. Barring a trade, Atlanta will have three first-round picks. Schlenk said he would like for the new coach to have input on those draft decisions.

Schlenk said Budenholzer’s exit won’t change the team’s rebuilding effort .

”We’re going to continue to develop our young players,” he said. ”We’re going to continue to develop through the draft. We’re going to continue to look to gather assets and maintain our financial flexibility. This doesn’t change our plan at all.”



The Super Bowl champions Philadelphia Eagles used the NFL draft to add another playmaker, restock their depth chart and get a rugby star.

After using their only pick in the first two days to select South Dakota State tight end Dallas Goedert with the 52nd overall spot, the Eagles turned to defense in the fourth round Saturday. They took Pitt cornerback Avonte Maddox and Florida State defensive end Josh Sweat five picks apart. TCU offensive lineman Matt Pryor was picked in the sixth round and Philadelphia moved up 17 spots to draft Australian rugby player Jordan Mailata with No. 233.

Then the Eagles re-signed veteran running back and return specialist Darren Sproles, who tore an ACL and broke his forearm on the same play in Week 3 last season.

"Everybody in the building is excited to have Darren back," said Howie Roseman, the Eagles executive vice president of football operations. "He's that kind of guy."

Mailata Jake Lamb Jersey , 6-foot-7, 346 pounds, is projected as an offensive tackle. He began to pursue a career in the NFL last year and trained in Florida the past few months.

"I knew if I made the decision, I'd be all in," said Mailata, who looks dominant running with the ball and knocking tacklers over in highlight videos. "Walking away from something I know very well to do something foreign was a big risk."

Maddox, chosen Saturday at No. 125, played four seasons in college. Despite his size 鈥?5-foot-9 and 184 pounds 鈥?Maddox is known for his tough, physical play. He had seven sacks along with eight interceptions over the past three years.

"This is a guy that fits in with our DB room," said Joe Douglas, the Eagles vice president of player personnel. "It's a group of highly competitive guys, and he's going to blend in perfectly, and even stand out to a degree. Even though he's not the biggest guy Frank Ragnow Jersey , he will attack and support."

Sweat, 6-foot-5 and 251 pounds, was picked at No. 130. He had 14陆 sacks in three seasons and gives the Eagles even more depth on a deep defensive line.

Pryor, 6-foot-7 and 338 pounds, started 21 games at right guard and six at right tackle in his final two seasons.

Here are some other things to know about the Eagles' draft:

SET UP FOR 2019

The Eagles added Baltimore's second-round pick next year by trading out of the first round, and sent a 2019 seventh-round pick to New England to move up 17 spots to get Mailata. They have eight picks in 2019 plus they'll likely get compensatory picks for losing free agents Trey Burton and Beau Allen.

READY TO PLAY

Maddox will compete for the nickel cornerback spot. Patrick Robinson, who had a pick-6 in the NFC championship game, left in free agency. Maddox also will get a chance to contribute as a returner.

"It can be anything on special teams," Maddox said. "And if they need me to play in the slot, I'll try to do my best there. And if they need me to play outside, I'll do my best there. Anything that they need me to do, I'll do it."

VALUE PICK

Sweat would've gone earlier in the draft if it weren't for medical concerns going back to a knee injury suffered in high school.

"He was much higher rated than where we got him," Roseman said. "We have a lot of trust in our medical staff. Dr. (Peter) DeLuca has done a great job for us for a long time. When he tells us that the guy's ready to go Authentic Geron Christian Jersey , we rely on them and we trust that."

Sweat only missed three games and sat out a bowl game last year to prepare for the draft.

"I think without the injury hopefully it would have been different," he said. "I wouldn't say frustrating. It's been more motivating if anything."

OVERLOADED D-LINE

The addition of Sweat plus free agents Michael Bennett and Haloti Ngata strengthens a line that already features Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, Tim Jernigan, Chris Long and Derek Barnett.

"That's what we call 'rich man problems,'" Roseman said. "We're excited about that. That's how we're going to build this. We're always going to put priority on the lines. You can never have too many."

MULTI-TALENTED

Goedert, who will team with Pro Bowl tight end Zach Ertz to give the Eagles another weapon at the position, rides a unicycle in parades in his hometown, Britton, South Dakota. He said the skill helps him on the field.

"It helps with the balance for sure," Goedert said. "If you get hit a little bit on the legs, you can torque your body to stay upright. So I think the balance definitely plays a big factor."

STILL NEED

Not a lot considering they are champions. Maybe some help on the offensive line.
