Hawks Sign Pero Antic

The Hawks announced that they have signed Macedonian forward/center Pero Antic.  Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Antic's agent tipped the signing yesterday on his Twitter and indicated that it was a one-year deal with an option for year two.  The Hawks still appear to have some cap space, so Antic could be getting more than the minimum salary.

Antic helped lead Greek powerhouse Olympiacos to back-to-back Euroleague titles in 2012 and 2013 and has also captured championships in Serbia, Russia, and Bulgaria.  In 31 Euroleague contests in 2012/13, Antic averaged 6.0 PPG and 3.5 RPG in 17.5 minutes of action.

The 30-year-old is the captain of the Macedonian National Team, helping the team to the semifinals of EuroBasket 2011 in Lithuania.   He averaged 11.5 points and 8.8 rebounds over 11 games in that year's tournament, while collecting three double-doubles.
