Lane spent the past three seasons as the Warriors’ head of Physical Performance and Sports Medicine.
The move comes a year after the Hawks hired general manager Travis Schlenk from the Warriors. The Hawks also hired several members of the Warriors athletic performance staff after the team won its first NBA title
