Travis Schlenk

General Manager and Head of Basketball Operations

Travis Schlenk is in his second season as Atlanta's General Manager and Head of Basketball Operations. He was named to his position on May 25, 2017.

Following through on his stated goals of adding young talent and positioning the team for the future in terms of salary cap and roster flexibility, the Hawks have acquired consensus 2018 First-Team All-American Trae Young (the fifth overall pick in 2018), drafted NBA Second-Team All-Rookie forward John Collins (19th overall in 2017), Tyler Dorsey (41st pick in 2017), Kevin Huerter (19th selection in 2018) and Omari Spellman (30th overall in 2018), while also obtaining first-round picks from Houston (2018), Dallas (protected 2019) and Oklahoma City (protected 2022), as well as multiple second-rounders.

Schlenk, a veteran of more than 18 years in the NBA, joined the Hawks after 13 seasons with the Golden State Warriors, including the final six as Assistant General Manager, where he assisted two-time NBA Executive of the Year Bob Myers in the management of all day-to-day basketball operations activities. He was previously the Warriors' Director of Player Personnel for two years after five seasons as an assistant coach and video scout.

During Schlenk's time as part of Golden State's basketball leadership, the Warriors hired 2016 NBA Coach of the Year Steve Kerr as head coach, drafted two-time NBA Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry, two-time All-NBA selection Klay Thompson, three-time All-Defensive First Team pick and 2017 NBA Defensive Player of the Year Draymond Green and Harrison Barnes; acquired 2015 Finals MVP Andre Iguodala and Andrew Bogut via trade; and signed 2014 NBA MVP and 2017 and 2018 NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant and Shaun Livingston.

Over his stint at Golden State, the Warriors reached three consecutive NBA Finals and won the championship in 2015 and 2017. Golden State compiled a record of 207-39 (.841) over that span, the best three-year run in NBA history, also becoming the first club to win 65-or-more games in three consecutive seasons.

He was a video coordinator for the Miami Heat from 1999-04 (where he worked alongside Hall-of-Famer Pat Riley, Stan Van Gundy and Erik Spoelstra), Director of Basketball Operations at the University of Georgia in 1998-99 and part of the Orlando Magic's basketball operations staff in 1997-98, where he worked under Hall-of-Famer Chuck Daly.

Schlenk earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Management & Human Ecology from Bethel College in North Newton, Kansas, where he also played basketball. He owns a Masters of Education with an emphasis in Sports Administration from Wichita State University.

A native of Selden, Kansas, Schlenk and his wife, Sarah, have two daughters, Morgan and Charlotte, and a son, Will.

Lloyd Pierce Head Coach

Lloyd Pierce was named the 13th full-time Head Coach in Hawks history on May 11, 2018.

Pierce, 42, came to the Hawks following five years as an Assistant Coach with the Philadelphia 76ers, who finished last season third in the Eastern Conference with a 52-30 mark and advanced to the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

Under Pierce's guidance last season, the Sixers' defense led the NBA in field goal percentage defense (.434), ranked second in three-point percentage allowed (.342) and was third in defensive rating (102.0). Two Philadelphia players, Robert Covington (First Team) and Joel Embiid (Second Team), earned NBA All-Defensive selections.

Pierce joined the Sixers after two seasons with Memphis, where he was Assistant Coach-Player Development, helping lead the Grizzlies to back-to-back playoff appearances and the Western Conference Finals in 2013.

He spent the 2010-11 season as an Assistant Coach with the Golden State Warriors after three years as Assistant CoachPlayer Development with Cleveland (2007-10), where the Cavaliers made three playoff appearances and a trip to the Eastern Conference Finals in 2009.

Prior to his NBA coaching career, Pierce was an Assistant Coach at his alma mater, Santa Clara University, from 2002-07. The San Jose, CA native played four seasons for the Broncos, where he teamed with two-time NBA MVP Steve Nash and current Assistant Coach, Marlon Garnett. Pierce graduated with a Bachelor's of Science in Business Management in 1998.

He and his wife, Melissa, have a daughter, Maya Joy, born in August, 2018.
