Basketball Hall of Famer and NBA legend Magic Johnson said he met with Atlanta Hawks general manager Danny Ferry and that Ferry deserves a second chance after making racial comments about Miami Heat forward Luol Deng.

Johnson took to Twitter to say that he respected and accepted Ferry’s apology. 

Ferry took an indefinite leave of absence from the team after saying that Deng has "got some African in him" while on a recorded conference call in June to discuss free agency matters with the Hawks' ownership.  Ferry also said about Deng, “He's like a guy who would have a nice store out front and sell you counterfeit stuff out of the back."
