Atlanta Hawks President of Basketball Operations and General Manager Danny Ferry has only been at the helm two weeks, but has already re-made the team in his own image, furthering that vision by hiring former colleague Wes Wilcox as Assistant GM earlier Tuesday.
Ferry and Wilcox worked together from 2005-2010 with the Cleveland Cavaliers (Ferry’s first year as GM). With Cleveland (arriving in 2003), Wilcox has served as an advance scout, college and pro personnel scout, and director of player personnel. Last year, Wilcox held the role of GM for the Cavs’ NBA Developmental League team — Canton Charge.
A graduate of Cal-State Fullerton, Wilcox has also served stints with the Miami Heat and New Orleans Hornets during his front office career.
