I start by saying this may not mean anything, but … it is interesting that one day after former NBA player Chris Webber announces that he is putting a group together that is interested in buying a majority ownership he tweeted a picture of him and Dominique Wilkins.
Wilkins, who himself has expressed interest in being a part of a group to buy the Hawks, serves several roles with the Hawks, including Vice President of Basketball and most recently got the position of Special Advisor to CEO Steve Koonin. There is no indication when the photo was taken but it was posted Friday morning.
The sale process continues with the exact percentage of the franchise available still to be determined. There are said to be several prospective buyers that will begin to be vetted once the final percentage has been determined via an Atlanta Spirit board meeting.
