Hawks' sales pitch 'unfortunate' mistake
The sales letter, first reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and obtained by The Associated Press, says interest is ''skyrocketing'' as the Hawks' ''possibilities of landing Chris Paul & Dwight Howard become more and more of a reality.''
Williams' statement Tuesday was to show the sales pitch was not tampering.
He confirmed the ticket representative is a member of the team's business staff. Williams says the staffer's ''specific reference clearly does not represent how our basketball operations or our business staff have consistently communicated about free agency.''
