Atlanta Hawks general manager Rick Sund said Wednesday he was “disappointed” about the team’s playoff exit and “surprised” by the players’ effort in Game 3 against the Orlando Magic. But he indicated he is not close to making a decision on the status of coach Mike Woodson.
Speaking publicly for the first time since the Hawks were swept by the Magic in four games in the Eastern Conference semifinals, Sund said he hasn’t even deliberated on Woodson’s future yet.
“There is no time frame [for a decision],” he said. “It hasn’t even been 48 hours yet. For the last two days, I’ve been having meetings with players and staff.”
He said he has not yet met with Woodson or any of his assistants. Sund said he expected to shift his attention to the coaching situation “relatively soon.”
“I like to take emotion out of these things,” he said. “You can’t do that right after the game.”
Sund would not comment on
