Price joins Hawks staff

Mark Price, an Enid native and arguably the greatest high school player ever in Oklahoma, has joined the Atlanta Hawks as shooting consultant. He spent last season as the shooting consultant for the Memphis Grizzlies.

Price went on to star at Georgia Tech before becoming a four-time NBA All-Star with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Price has career averages of 18.3 points, 8.1 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 1.4 steals in 722 games. To this day, Price is the NBA’s all-time leader in free-throw percentage at 90.4 percent.

I thought Price would have been a great addition as the color commentator for the Thunder. Unfortunately for OKC, he seems to be more interested in embarking on a coaching career.
