A day after releasing three camp invitees, the Hawks have added another player, signing Cartier Martin to a contract, according to Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (Twitter link). The move brings the Hawks’ roster count back up to 18 players.
Martin, 28, has spent parts of the last four seasons with the Wizards, appearing in 118 total games for Washington. Last season, the 6’7″ forward averaged 6.6 PPG and 2.4 RPG in 41 contests (16.9 MPG).
Despite having 18 players under contract, the Hawks should still have a roster spot or two up for grabs this month. The team has 12 players on guaranteed deals, plus Mike Scott on a partially-guaranteed contract ($100K guaranteed). Assuming Martin gets the chance to compete for a regular-season spot, he’ll be in the mix along with Eric Dawson, Royal Ivey, James Johnson, and Shelvin Mack.
