Reports: Hawks to hire ex-players Fields, 32, as assistant GM

The Atlanta Hawks will hire former NBA player Landry Fields as assistant general manager, according to multiple reports Wednesday. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski was first to report the news.

Fields, 32, played five seasons in the league from 2010-15 with the New York Knicks and Toronto Raptors. He appeared in 255 career games (176 starts) and averaged 6.8 points and 4.3 rebounds per contest.

The California native played at Stanford before the Knicks drafted him in the second round (No. 39 overall) in 2010.

Most recently, Fields served as the general manager of the San Antonio Spurs’ G-League affiliate in Austin, Texas.
