The Atlanta Hawks fined Ivan Johnson and sent him home from Orlando today, but he’s expected to rejoin the team on Saturday for practice. Reports the AJC: “Hawks coach Larry Drew declined to expand on the disciplinary action, or the reason for it, following this morning’s shoot-around. ‘We made a decision to discipline him by sending him home, fining him and we will move on,’ Drew said. Johnson, a 27-year-old NBA rookie, has had issues in the past. He washed out after one season of run-ins with coach Ernie Kent at Oregon. After one year at Division II Cal State-San Bernardino, Johnson played a season in the NBA Development League before joining the Korean Basketball League. That opportunity ended last year when the KBL banned Johnson after he reportedly made an obscene gesture at a game official. He headed back to the D-League where he was good enough to be named first-team all-league, but volatile enough to lead the league in technical fouls. Johnson’s coach with the Erie BayHawks eventually benched him for his behavior. ‘With me, no it’s not a concern,’ Drew said of Johnson’s documented disciplinary issues. ‘Isolated incident. If it were anybody else we would have taken the same measure. I spoke to him before he left. We had a good conversation. It was like I told him, we will do what we have to do. He will miss tonight’s game. We will see him when we get back to Atlanta. We are moving on.’”
