The most celebrated player to ever put on an Atlanta Hawks uniform and represented in front of State Farm Arena by an 18,500-pound bronze statue, Wilkins is currently the Hawks’ Vice President of Basketball and Special Advisor to the CEO.

Additionally, Wilkins has an extensive entrepreneurial career.

Wilkins is also extremely active with local and national charity endeavors. Diagnosed with type 2 diabetes when he was 40, he recently launched the Diabetes Dream Team initiative with Novo Nordisk to help educate those with diabetes. He is the current board chairman of Kulturecity the nation’s leading nonprofit on invisible disabilities and sensory needs and has also done work with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Special Olympics, Muscular Dystrophy Association and American Lung Association.
