The Hawks also made several other front office changes as part of a restructuring under Schlenk, latitude he was given when first approached about an extension by ownership earlier this summer. The Hawks had been without an assistant general manager after Jeff Peterson left to take the same position with the Nets earlier this year.
The Hawks elevated Chelsea Lane to vice president of athletic performance and sports medicine, Dan Martinez to vice president of team operations, Derek Pierce to vice president of player personnel, Dotun Akinwale Jr. to director of scouting, Mike McNeive to director of player personnel, Daniel Starkman to senior manager of basketball operations, Nick Ressler to manager of basketball operations, Paul Jesperson to assistant video coordinator, Chris Mast to data scientist, athletic performance and sports medicine and Connor Smith to assistant athletic trainer.
In addition, Stephen Giles was named pro player personnel scout. He was most recently a scout with the Cavaliers but served as an advance scout for the Hawks from 2008-11.
Schlenk came from the Hawks after 13 seasons with the Warriors, including the last five as assistant general manager. He previously worked for the Heat, Magic and the University of Georgia.
