ATLANTA — Danny Ferry officially stepped down as general manager of the Atlanta Hawks on Monday and said having to watch the team’s most successful season from a distance was “bittersweet.” Ferry, 48, spoke publicly Monday for the first time since going on indefinite leave in August following racially inflammatory comments about then-free agent Luol Deng. “It was hard, but winning makes everything better,” Ferry told The Associated Press.
