"The #Hawks just landed in NYC and had a convo with a very disappointed Marvin Williams, who while attending the funeral of a family friend, had to hear about his "reported" trade request. He vehemently denies ever asking for a trade and said, "you know that's not me".

Earlier today, word broke from Chris Broussard of ESPN that the Atlanta Hawks’ Marvin Williams “wants out because he wants to play somewhere where he’ll have an increased role offensively.” Williams himself has since gotten word of the rumor, and he’s adamant that it’s not true.
“He vehemently denies ever asking for a trade and said, ‘you know that’s not me,’” Hawks PR man Arthur Triche tweeted.
The rumor broke while the Hawks were on a flight to New York, where they take on the Knicks tomorrow night. Williams heard the “news” while attending the funeral of a family friend.
Williams has become the fifth option in the Hawks’ starting five offensively, with his 9.6 points per game this year the lowest clip since his rookie season. The Hawks are chugging along at 19-13, ranked sixth in the Eastern Conference.

CHICAGO — Atlanta Hawks forward Marvin Williams missed Monday’s game against the Chicago Bulls because of a death in his family.
Coach Larry Drew says he’s not sure if it was an immediate family member or not. He was not sure, either, when Williams would rejoin the team and would not say where he traveled to. Williams is averaging 9.6 points.

Atlanta Hawks forward Tracy McGrady met with management following his outburst Saturday night over his lack of playing time in a loss to Portland. McGrady reportedly sat down with Hawks coach Larry Drew and general manager Rick Sund to discuss the situation. Both sides emerged from the meeting vowing to move on.


Something tells me that Drew is not in control of the ship. Neither is Hawks management or PR person. When a player vows to move on, that suggests that nothing was resolved.

I would guess that when we signed McGrady he was told Crawford's minutes where there for the taking. My question is has he done enough to warrant taking them?

He is definitely different than Crawford. Moreover, our bench is fuller. However, "vow to move on" are frighten words to here in a situation like this.

Just let it go about the whole Marvin thing dude, why are you highlighting "a family friend in red". Here are Marvin's own words:

Vivlamore reporting from New York.
Marvin Williams could not have been any clearer. The Hawks forward did not demand a trade nor has he complained about his offensive role on the team. Never.
On Wednesday, Williams disputed an ESPN report Tuesday that said as much.

Here it is in his words:

For starters, I haven’t even been here,” said Williams who rejoined the team after missing Monday’s game in Chicago. “I buried my cousin on Monday and woke up Tuesday to three text messages and six phone calls saying that I requested a trade. This is news to me. I’m at home. I don’t know what is going on.
“I saw a lot about what was written but you can ask anybody, LD [Larry Drew] or anybody, I’ve never complained about anything since I’ve been here. You know that. Any reporter that has followed me since I’ve been in Atlanta since ’05 has never heard me complain about anything. I’ve never complained about starting, not starting, shots, no shots, minutes played. …

wether it is a family friend or cousin, it is his right to attend if he wants. Family is more important

Does not scare me at all. If I have to choose between playoffs, another first or second round exit or a shot at the lottery, I hope TMac, ZaZa, and everyone else over 30 not named JJ retires today.

Don't you find it interesting that the Hawks PR guy nor the coach had no clue about the relationship, where he went, or when he would come back??
I'm saying that if your cousin died, would your supervisor, boss, etc say: he’s not sure if it was an immediate family member or not. He was not sure, either, when Williams would rejoin the team and would not say where he traveled to.

That also strikes me as odd. It says to me that Larry Drew doesn't have that strong of a relationship with his team. Neither Marvin nor Tmac. I believe that these are just some signs that LD may be losing the team.

No...because when I've had a death in my family all I say to my supervisor is I've had a death in my family and I will be out of town or unavailable for a few days. I will no more when the funeral date is set when I will be back to work.
Stop trying to make a mountain out of a mole hill. Nobody cares. He went to the funeral and he is back. It's OVER.
