Hawks Sign Second-Rounder Tyrese Martin

The Hawks have signed second-round draft pick Tyrese Martin, the team announced in a press release.

It’s a two-year contract, Lauren Williams of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution tweets.

Martin, the No. 51 overall pick, was acquired with a draft-night trade with the Warriors. Martin was dealt to Atlanta, along with cash considerations, in exchange for the draft rights to Ryan Rollins, the No. 44 pick.

Through four Summer League contests, the former UConn swingman is averaging 12.0 PPG, 3.8 RPG and 1.8 APG in 24.2 MPG. He had a game-high 21 points on 9-for-14 shooting from the floor in Atlanta’s 95-88 win over Miami on July 12.

Martin saw action in 29 games for the Huskies last season, averaging 13.6 PPG, 7.5 RPG and 1.9 APG in 32.1 MPG. He transferred to UConn following a two-year stint at Rhode Island.

Martin is the 14th Hawk to receive a standard contract for 2022/23.
