Former Atlanta Hawks assistant coach Lester Connerwill reportedly follow head coach Larry Drew to Milwaukee and will be a part of Milwaukee's new coaching staff. Conner had been a part of Drew's staff for the last three seasons after coming over from Indiana.
There is no word yet as to whether or not any of Drew's Atlanta staff are candidates to be retained. Veteran Bob Bender was a holdover from Mike Woodson's tenure as head coach in Atlanta while Bob Weiss and Kenny Atkinson joined the staff last season.
Atlanta likely won't announce any new hires to their coaching staff until after the NBA Finals are complete. It was previously reported that the Hawks had been given permission to speak with Los Angeles Lakers assistant Darvin Ham. No other names have surfaced as of yet but it will be interesting to see if MIke Budenholzer and Danny Ferry tap further into the Gregg Popovich coaching tree.
