In a series of tweets, NBA legend Ervin “Magic” Johnson said that he believes that Atlanta Hawks General Manager Danny Ferry deserves a second chance.

Racial issues with Donald Sterling last spring has made Johnson somewhat of a spokesman for the players regarding race. Ferry has been on an indefinite leave of absence since Sept. 12, after leaked recording of a scouting report Ferry read over the summer about Deng surfaced.

In the audio, Ferry described Deng who was a free agent at the time, in very racist terms based on his African heritage.

The Hawks open training camp on Monday.
