Atlanta Hawks hire 1st female G League general manager

The Atlanta Hawks' G League affiliate became the first team in the league to hire a woman as general manager with the promotion of Tori Miller to the post on Thursday.

Miller spent time as a basketball operations intern for the Phoenix Suns before her time in the G League. She was named assistant GM of the Skyhawks in July 2019 and began her G League career as basketball operations manager three seasons ago with the Erie BayHawks.

Former Skyhawks GM Derek Pierce will continue to oversee Atlanta's scouting department in his role as VP of player personnel for the Hawks, the team said.
