Drew adds Weiss, Atkinson as assistants with Hawks

Former Hawks coach Bob Weiss is returning to Atlanta as an

assistant coach and consultant on coach Larry Drew’s staff.

Weiss was the Hawks’ coach from 1990-93. He was also head coach

with San Antonio (1986-88), the Los Angeles Clippers (1993-94) and

Seattle (2005-06).

The Hawks on Tuesday also announced former Knicks assistant

Kenny Atkinson has joined Drew’s staff as assistant coach for

player development.

In addition, former Hawks general manager Rick Sund has been

named a senior adviser for basketball operations.

Weiss and Atkinson will join assistants Lester Conner and Bob

Bender, and player development instructor Nick Van Exel on the

Hawks’ bench.

Atkinson was a Knicks assistant the last four years. He

previously was Houston’s director of player development.
