Hawks guard Kyle Korver spoke to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution about the recent issues facing the team. Korver, who is on the executive board of the National Basketball Players Association, was at a team meeting Sunday when CEO Steve Koonin spoke to the team.

Q: You were teammates with Luol Deng. Would you care to comment about what was said about him? Have you reached out to him?

A. Yeah we did speak. Luol is such a good guy. And he’s been through so much in life that I don’t really think this has really even phased him. He told me that he didn’t think that Danny or anyone with the Hawks was racist. He said he was shocked when he heard what was said, but that sometimes things just slip out. It was pretty amazing, really. He just wants everything to move on. He wants to get back to basketball.
