Former Ohio State shooting guard David Lighty will be in camp next month with the Hawks, according to Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Word that Lighty would accept a training camp invite from the team was first reported earlier in the summer by Emiliano Carchia of Sportando.
Lighty, 25, went undrafted in 2011 as Chad Ford's 64th-best prospect in that year's rookie class. He has played overseas since then, most recently averaging 12.5 PPG and shooting 42.5% on three-pointers in 35 games for JSF Nanterre in France.
As Vivlamore notes, Lighty and Eric Dawson are the players confirmed to be camp invitees so far for the Hawks, while Shelvin Mack is on a non-guaranteed contract and Mike Scott only has a partial guarantee. Mack and Scott probably have a leg up on Lighty and Dawson for regular-season roster spots, but with only 12 guaranteed contracts on their books so far, the Hawks should have a few players competing for those last few openings next month.
