There’s no basketball, but Hawks players and employees are finding ways to stay busy and give back the the community this Thanksgiving week. Here’s what a few players are up to:
- Jamal Crawford Announces 2nd Charity Game – Crawford announced plans for charity basketball game to take place on December 15 at the University of Washington. Other NBA players who have confirmed their attendance include John Wall, Brandon Roy, Kevin Durant, and Jason Terry. Crawford hosted a similar event back in July.
