A couple of those interested have some big NBA name recognition — Grant Hill and former Suns and Raptors GM Bryan Colangelo.

Over at the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Chris Vivlamore laid out some of the rumored interested parties in buying the team.

* Jason Levian. The former Memphis Grizzlies CEO left the organization in May. He is a co-owner of the MLS franchise D.C. United.

* Steve Kaplan: The Los Angeles-based investor joined Robert Pera’s group as a limited investor to purchase the Memphis Grizzlies. He has reportedly made attempts to buy baseball’s San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers in recent years.

* Sheldon Adelson: The billionaire businessman is the chairman and CEO of the Las Vegas Sands Corporation.

* Byran Colangelo: The former President and CEO of the Toronto Raptors. The son of Jerry Colangelo, he was the NBA’s 2005 and 2007 Executive of the Year.

* Grant Hill: The former NBA player and current analyst joined Antony Ressler and Bruce Karsh with a $1.2 billion failed bid to by the Los Angeles Clippers. Hill deflected questions about his interest in the Hawks during a recent segment on NBA TV. http://probasketballtalk.nbcsports.com/2015/01/07/report-grant-hill-bryan-colangelo-just-two-of-many-trying-to-by-atlanta-hawks/

Watch him come in and sign Bargnani in the offseason instead of Millsap

^ yeah like Lowry for the 14th pick. BC had his mistakes but he is a good basketball mind and can be a good GM somewhere.

I would disagree. He's a good business mind but know nothing about a good basketball team. Leiweke made the right move in getting him out of the basketball program and intto the MLSE office.

Bac had lowry, but didn't trust him and traded Haddadi and a pretty good second for Telfair who played how many minutes?

No, he's a front office face. Grant Hill would be a face too.

Grant Hill is loaded and has a net worth of close to 200M.

That doesn't get it done.... sell everything to buy 1/6 of an NBA team?
