Player Development - from Atlanta Hawks Assistant Coach, Matt Hill

by Coach Liam Flynn

Description

Atlanta Hawks Assistant Coach, Matt Hill, recently completed a series of coaching clinics in Australia.  The clinics were staged by Coach Liam Flynn basketball services.  This video is from his first clinic, in Sydney, on the topic of 'Player Development'.  

Matt is one of the best in the NBA in the area of Player Development.  He has worked with NBA All-Stars Victor Oladipo, Nikola Vucevic and Vince Carter, as well as, NBA First Team All Rookie Trae Young.

In this clinic, Coach Hill takes the audience through the Atlanta Hawks' philosophy on Player Development and how they instil this 'working' culture through their 'daily vitamins'.  He conducts workouts for both guards and bigs which feature ball handling, finishing, shooting and decision making.  He then takes questions from the audience on a wide range of subjects.  

The simplicity of the teaching and drilling makes this video a must watch for coaches from the youth level all the way up to the professional ranks.

The Coach

Matt Hill is entering his second season as an Assistant Coach with the Atlanta Hawks. 
 
Since being hired by Lloyd Pierce, Hill has overseen and implemented many of the Player Development processes the Hawks currently employ while remaining actively involved in the Hawks’ opponent scouting efforts. 
 
Prior to his tenure in Atlanta, Hill spent six seasons with the Orlando Magic, where he worked with three different head coaches: Jacque Vaughn, Scott Skiles and Frank Vogel.  Hill began his career with Orlando as Video Analyst/Opposition in 2012.  Hill was promoted to Manager of Advanced Scouting/Player Development in 2015 and ultimately to Assistant Coach during Vogel’s tenure.  During his time in Orlando he worked with such players as Victor Oladipo, Nik Vucevic, Evan Fournier and Aaron Gordon.  Hill’s roles and responsibilities varied from on-court player development to preparing and delivering opponent scouting reports.
 
Following a decorated high school career at Southeast High School in Lincoln, Nebraska, Hill was named Nebraska’s Mr. Basketball and Gatorade Player of the Year.  Hill played basketball at The University of Texas from 2006-2011, where he served as team captain during the 2010-11 season.  Hill earned a bachelor’s degree in corporate communications from UT in 2010.
