The Atlanta Hawks have parted ways with Wes Wilcox, according to a report from ESPN.

Wilcox had been general manager of the team, working closely with Mike Budenholzer.

Wilcox joined the Hawks in 2012 after previously working with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Wilcox was promoted to GM in 2015.

The Hawks disciplined Wilcox in January after he made a racial remark at an event for season ticket holders.

The Hawks face another key offseason in which the direction of their franchise will largely be determined by the free agency of Paul Millsap.

The Hawks are denying the report, releasing the following statement to Chris Vivlamore: "There are no changes to report at this time. Any reports indicating otherwise are inaccurate."

Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports that decisions are still being made about Wilcox's future. Budenholzer could drop his duties as president while remaining as head coach.

Update: The Hawks decided one day later to retain Wilcox in the front office.
