The Atlanta Hawks are pursuing Stan Van Gundy for their head coach vacancy.

Danny Ferry and Van Gundy have been in contact, but have yet to meet in person about the opportunity.

The Hawks also plan on pursuing Dwight Howard and there is a growing belief that a reunion would be of interest.

Sources say Van Gundy holds Ferry in high regard.

The Hawks have not made a final decision on Larry Drew, but it is assumed he won't be back unless they are unable to secure a deal with any of their top targets.
