Hawks Hire Landry Fields As Assistant GM

OCTOBER 2: The Hawks have officially hired Fields as their assistant general manager, the team confirmed today in a press release. According to the team, his role will focus on “bolstering player relations, scouting, and strategic planning.”

“Landry has quickly risen through the ranks, bringing a unique combination of playing experience, sharp eye for player development and strong skills as a communicator,” Schlenk said in a statement. “He will be a welcome addition to our group.”

SEPTEMBER 23: The Hawks are hiring Austin Spurs general manager Landry Fields as their new assistant general manager, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The 32-year-old Fields joined the Spurs as a scout in 2016 and was promoted to G League GM last year. He is filling a vacancy in Atlanta that has been open since Jeff Peterson, who was the Hawks’ assistant general manager under general manager Travis Schlenk, left in 2019.

Fields also spent five seasons in the NBA, playing for both the Knicks and Raptors. In 255 games, he averaged 6.8 PPG and 4.3 RPG.

        He wasn’t very good so it made sense to move on to the next stage. He’s moving up pretty fast on the executive side of things, so it seems like it was a good call.

          That’s not entirely true, once in Toronto he has a nerve issue in his right arm that required multiple surgeries. He tried to chance his shooting motion to left handed but was unable to. He was a Ivey league player so no suprise he is rising through the front office ranks.

    Landry Fields –

    Could the Hawks (who need a backup 4) look acquire (little used) Luka Šamanić (who was relegated to Austin for most the season) with a CAP space trade?

    ATL: Rudy Gay + Luka Šamanić + #11 + 2021 1st Lottery Protected (if it does not convey 2021 SAS 2nd rounder).

    SAS: #6

    ATL trades CAP space & drops back to #11 to pick up a late 1st/early 2nd in 2021…plus expiring wing veteran in Rudy Gay in addition to little used stretch-4 on a controllable contract.
