Hawks hold off on call about Larry Drew's future; coach wants to return but weighing options

One day after the Atlanta Hawks were bounced from the NBA playoffs, Larry Drew remains their coach.

General manager Danny Ferry said Saturday it's too soon to make such a major decision on the team's future. He plans to let the disappointment of a six-game loss to the Indiana Pacers wear off a bit before deciding whether Drew is the coach to lead what figures to be a much different roster next season.

Drew endured a lame-duck season after the team renewed the option on his contract last summer but didn't give him an extension. He concedes that set up a difficult situation, especially coaching a team that has only three players definitely under contract going forward. But Drew says he's proud of the way the Hawks stuck together.
