Hawks Sign Damien Wilkins To Contract For Remainder Of The Season

Per Hawks PR Release:

The Atlanta Hawks today signed guard/forward Damien Wilkins for the remainder of the season according to Executive Vice President/General Manager Rick Sund. Per team policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Wilkins has appeared in 20 games off the bench for Atlanta this season, averaging 2.6 ppg, 1.8 rpg, 0.7 apg and 0.6 spg (.447 FG%, .739 FT%) in 12.3 mpg. The seventh-year veteran was originally signed by the Hawks on December 3, 2010, and waived on January 5, 2011, before signing consecutive 10-day contracts on January 8 and 18. 

The Hawks were faced with a decision on Wilkins after he had signed the maximum of two 10-day contracts. Coach Drew has been in his corner from the outset and the rash of injuries that has plagued the Hawks probably worked in Damien's favor.
