Atlanta Hawks to reportedly call-up James Nunnally from D-League

Jennifer Stewart-USA TODAY Sport

The Atlanta Hawks will reportedly call-up James Nunnally from the NBA D-League. Nunnally is a small forward and is averaging 18.2 points for the Bakersfield Jam this season.

A report by Gino Pilato of D-League Digest suggests that the Atlanta Hawks are expected to call-up forward James Nunnally from the Bakersfield Jam of the NBA D-League. The Hawks opened a roster spot earlier this week by waiving Cartier Martin.

Nunnally is a 6-7 small forward out of UC Santa Barbara. He is in his second season with the Bakersfield Jam and is averaging a career-best 18.2 points and 4.4 rebounds. Bakersfield is Atlanta's D-League affiliate so they are likely familiar with Nunnally from having watched Jared Cunningham and Dennis Schröder during their stints in the D-League. Cunningham is currently on assignment with the Jam. Nunnally had two strong showings in the D-League Showcase this week in Reno in front of plenty of league executives.

USA Today's Sam Amick first reported the possibility of a Nunnally call up to the Hawks earlier this week. The team hasn't announced any moves so we will just have to wait and see if this happens.

Update: According to Real GM's Shams Charania, Nunnelly met with four teams at the D-League Showcase and has agreed to sign a 10-day contract with the Hawks. Still no announcement from the team.

Update No. 2: According to the AJC's Chris Vivlamore there is a "good possibility" that the Hawks will sign Nunnally to a 10-day contract. Vivlamore indicates that Nunnally is not currently in Atlanta and that the team wouldn't start the clock on his 10-day contract until Saturday.
