The Hawks have officially signed Jordan Mathews to their training camp roster, the team announced today in a press release. With Jeremy Evans‘ agreement having been finalized as well, Atlanta’s roster count is now at 19.
Mathews, a 6’4″ shooting guard, spent his first three college seasons at the University of California before transferring to Gonzaga for his senior year. In 2016/17, Mathews averaged 10.6 PPG, 3.3 RPG, and 1.5 APG for the Zags, with a shooting line of .405/.392/.733. A designated marksman throughout his college career, the 23-year-old attempted more total shots from three-point range than from inside the arc.
While details of Mathews’ contract with the Hawks haven’t been reported, it figures to feature a very modest guarantee, if it includes any guaranteed money at all. The Hawks have their own G League affiliate this season, and Mathews looks like a good bet to become an affiliate player for the Erie BayHawks.
