The Atlanta Hawks and Quin Snyder are progressing in talks on a deal to make him the franchise's next coach and a resolution could be reached within days, sources told ESPN on Friday.

Since firing coach Nate McMillan on Tuesday, the Hawks have made Snyder the full focus of the coaching search, sources said. Snyder has been engaged with general manager Landry Fields, assistant GM Kyle Korver and owner Tony Ressler on a wide range of philosophical and team-building items in recent days and those conversations are expected to continue through the start of the weekend, sources said.

Although Snyder is out of the country with his family, the sides have been discussing in detail how they'd work together to develop a partnership, sources said.

The Hawks are prepared to make a significant contractual commitment to Snyder, who's considered the top coach available in the marketplace this year, sources said.

If Snyder takes over this season, the organization would certainly welcome a turnaround on a sub-.500 season, but even more so is determined to give Snyder a chance to start evaluating the team's personnel and collaborating on the baseline of a reshaped culture and program, sources said.
