Free agent forward Eric Dawson has accepted an invitation to training camp from the Hawks, reports Shams Charania of RealGM.com. According to Charania, Dawson's camp deal with Atlanta will be non-guaranteed.
Dawson enjoyed a brief NBA stint with the Spurs in 2011/12, when San Antonio inked him to a pair of 10-day contracts. Although he has only appeared in four career NBA contests, Dawson has plenty of experience overseas and in the D-League, having played for the Austin Toros as well as teams in the Dominican Republic, Japan, South Korea, and the Philippines.
A report in July indicated that Dawson had signed with Metros de Santiago of the Dominican Republic, so it's not clear what the status of that contract is now. Perhaps Dawson will return to the D.R. club if he fails to earn a spot on the Hawks' regular-season roster, though that's just my speculation.
