• Hawks start sale process after racism scandal


    ATLANTA: The Atlanta Hawks confirmed on Friday that the NBA team has started the process of selling the team, a move majority owner Bruce Levenson began last September after a racism controversy. Hawks owners have retained Goldman Sachs and Inner Circle Sports to advise on the sale of the club and other assets, with the process expected to take several months. NBA owners must approve any sale deal. Levenson decided to sell his majority interest in the Hawks last September after his 2012 e-mail became public in which he made racisl comments that included “the black crowd scared away the whites.”
