Hawks flirting with Blatt

Hawks flirting with Blatt

By Aris Barkas/ barkas@eurohoops.net

David Blatt, the coach of Maccabi Tel Aviv and also head of the Russian national team for the last five years, is considered one of the best in Europe. A graduate of Princeton, the Israeli-American coach is open to the possibility of working in the NBA and it seems that his wish may come true.

The coach of Atlanta Hawks, Larry Drew, landed in Tel Aviv and will meet him, according to this report in the practice of Maccabi. Blatt signed this summer a new three years contract with the team, but nobody knows what the future holds for him as he is rumored to have a turbulent relation with the club’s brass. However, he is expected to stay a resident of Tel Aviv for next season.


Hair-raising to the final whistle!
