The majority of our Danny Ferry rumors in recent weeks have seen him linked to the 76ers, as Rod Thorn's successor. However, Philadelphia isn't the only team with interest in the Spurs executive, according to Chris Broussard of ESPN.com. Broussard reports that the Hawks have been in touch with Ferry about becoming the team's new general manager.
The Hawks' current GM, Rick Sund, will see his contract expire at the end of June, and isn't interested in returning to Atlanta in his current role, says Broussard, adding that if Ferry or another exec takes over as GM, Sund could remain in the front office as a consultant. Michael Cunningham of the Atlanta Journal Constituion confirms (via Twitter) that Sund is likely to be back in some capacity.
Like Ferry, Sund has also been cited as a potential candidate to take over for Thorn in the Sixers' front office. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reported last week that Ferry was viewed as the frontrunner for the Philadelphia position. However, the Hawks' position would give the former Cavs GM more power and autonomy than he'd have with the Sixers, given Doug Collins' presence.
