Lakers assistant coach Darvin Ham joins Atlanta Hawks in team’s attempt to lure Dwight Howard

Iowa Energy v New Mexico Thunderbirds

All of Mike D’Antoni‘s coaching staff, apart from his brother, Dan, have now departed. Mike Brown originally put together the staff and D’Antoni assumed control of the coaches after being hired by the Los Angeles Lakers back in November.

Darvin Ham, the last of Brown’s assistants left on the team, joined the Atlanta Hawks today as an assistant coach, a move that apparently coincided with ATL’s desire to sign Dwight Howard this summer:

The Hawks are expected to make a run at Howard this summer, as well as Chris Paul. The pair reportedly want to play with each other next season, and Atlanta are apparently feeling more and more confident about landing the duo.

Dwight Howard worked with Ham quite a lot during his first year in Los Angeles. Ham will join former Lakers assistant Quin Snyder in Atlanta as a part of Mike Budenholzer‘s brand new staff.
