Continued speculation about the future of Paul Millsap with the NBA trade deadline looming ended with a few words. “He’s not going anywhere. You can write that,” said Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer, who also serves as president of basketball operations, to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Monday.
Budenholzer said Monday that the Hawks could still make moves at the trade deadline if there is a way to improve the team. He also said he would be comfortable with the team as it currently is constructed.
Hawks principal owner Tony Ressler has been with the Hawks recently, at home and on the road, and there have been meetings about the direction of the franchise, according to a person familair with the situation.
