Hawks Signing Nathan Knight To Two-Way Contract

The Hawks have reached an agreement on a two-way deal with undrafted free agent center Nathan Knight, a source tells Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN (Twitter link).

Knight, who spent all four years of his college career at William & Mary, averaged a double-double in 2019/20 as a senior, recording 20.7 PPG and 10.5 RPG in 32 games (29.6 MPG).

Jonathan Givony of ESPN, who ranked Knight 11th among undrafted prospects, called him one of the most skilled big men in college basketball and suggested he would have been a lock to have been drafted in the first round a decade or two ago. However, his poor lateral quickness could create issues on defense in the modern NBA.

Knight is the third rookie the Hawks are adding to the mix, having drafted Onyeka Okongwu and Skylar Mays on Wednesday.
