From Trae Young on down the roster, the Atlanta Hawks “were eager to hear a new voice” as head coach, which led to the decision to replace Lloyd Pierce with Nate McMillan, sources tell The Athletic.

Sources also tell The Athletic that “player support beyond Young was dwindling at the end, with several sharing their desire for a change with management recently.”

Several players had a lack of trust in Pierce and also expressed issues with his communication style.
