With the Atlanta Hawks mini camp officially underway, the team has announced a new hire. Landry Fields will be joining the organization as an assistant to GM Travis Schlenk — ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported just minutes ago.
Atlanta is hiring San Antonio’s Landry Fields as an assistant GM, sources tell ESPN. Fields was GM of the Spurs’ G-League affiliate in Austin. Fields, 32, played five years in the NBA.

You might remember Fields from his playing days with the Knicks (2010-2012) and Raptors (2012-2015) before hanging it up and joining the Spurs organization as a college scout. He eventually worked his way up to becoming the GM of San Antonio’s G-League affiliate. Now, at the young age of 32, Fields will be joining the Hawks in a higher position, which could springboard his career, especially if Atlanta begins to turn the corner and experience a lot of success after their lengthy rebuild.
