Hawks allowing Larry Drew to interview with other teams

USA TODAY Sports

The contract of Hawks head coach Larry Drew is up at the end of June, and the team is allowing him to speak with other teams about coaching jobs.

The Atlanta Hawks have not made a decision on the future of head coach Larry Drew, but they are looking at other candidates and are also allowing Drew to speak with other teams, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst.

Drew's contract is up on June 30 and he's open to returning to the team, but he could draw interest elsewhere. There are currently six head coaching vacancies, with several more jobs possibly opening up in the near future.

The Hawks could also look to go in another direction, and Stan Van Gundy has been listed as a top candidate. Van Gundy, however, has recently told people that he does not plan on coaching next season. Spurs assistant coach Mike Budenholzer is also reportedly on the Hawks' list of candidates.

Drew has coached in Atlanta for three years, compiling a 128-102 (.557) record. The Hawks have made the playoffs in all three seasons under Drew, reaching the Eastern Conferece Semifinals in 2010-11 and losing in the first round the last two years. Atlanta fell to the Indiana Pacers in six games in the first round of this year's postseason.
