Kenny Atkison served as an assistant to Mike Budenholzer in Atlanta for four years and is widely regarded as an excellent player development coach. He is also well liked and respected by many players around the league including the Nuggets' own, Wilson Chandler, who played for Atkinson when he was a part of the New York Knicks.
