Hawks GM Danny Ferry Says The 8th Seed Isn’t a Goal

Danny Ferry says Hawks have bigger goals than playoffs.

The Knicks and Hawks are currently battling for the last playoff spot in the east. Atlanta has reached the postseason for six consecutive seasons.

Danny Ferry couldn’t care less about the playoff streak.

“We’re not focused on trying to be the eighth seed in the playoffs because that’s not our goal,” Ferry told USA Today. “We’re trying to build something that’s good, sustainable and the components are in place for us to do so.”
