Danny Ferry Disciplined By Hawks, Releases Statement

Danny Ferry released a statement on Tuesday in response to the release of racial comments about Luol Deng.

The AP reported that the Hawks disciplined Ferry.

“In regards to the insensitive remarks that were used during our due diligence process, I was repeating comments that were gathered from numerous sources during background conversations and scouting about different players. I repeated those comments during a telephone conversation reviewing the draft and free agency process. Those words do not reflect my views, or words that I would use to describe an individual and I certainly regret it. I apologize to those I offended and to Luol, who I reached out to Monday morning.   

"In terms of the email that Bruce (Levenson) sent, the situation is disturbing and disappointing on many levels and I understand Bruce's words were offensive.

"I am committed to learning from this and deeply regret this situation. I fully understand we have work to do in order to help us create a better organization; one that our players and fans will be proud of, on and off the court, and that is where my focus is moving forward.”
