Hawks to sign Richard Solomon to training camp deal
The Atlanta Hawks have 15 players on guaranteed contracts, the max they can carry into the season. They are also loaded at the power forward spot with Paul Millsap, Mike Scott, Mike Muscala, and Kris Humphries.
Which means while they are bringing Richard Solomon to training camp, he’s not making the team.Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution had the report:
The Hawks will sign Richard Solomon to a non-guaranteed contract and the forward will join the team for training camp in two weeks, according to several people familiar with the situation....Solomon went undrafted out of the University of California in 2014 and signed to go to training camp with the Thunder. He was waived and spent the entire 2014-15 season with the Oklahoma City’s NBA Development League affiliate Blue. In 28 games, he averaged 8.5 points and 6.9 rebounds in 18 minutes.
Last season Solomon played in Japan, and he played in the Las Vegas Summer League with Oklahoma City. Solomon will make a little money with the Hawks and get the chance to turn heads and see if another team will give him a look.
