If the recently waived Pape Sy doesn't latch on with another NBA team by January 13 he will return to French team Gravelines-Dunkerque with whom he has a one-year contract.
Pape Sy will return to Gravelines without a contract in NBA sportando.net/eng/europe/fra…— Emiliano Carchia (@SportandoBasket) December 28, 2011
Sy's contract with Gravelines included an out-clause for the NBA which allowed him to return to the Atlanta Hawks for training camp. Sy played in both of the Hawks exhibition games as the back up shooting guard. Drafted in the second-round of the 2010 draft, Sy spent time with the Utah Flash of the NBA D-League last season before joining the Hawks for the stretch run. He was viewed as a combo guard that could fill in at the point guard position if needed. Atlanta opted to go with veteran Jannero Pargo and D-League vet Donald Sloan at that position.
Sy played eight games with Gravelines before leaving the club and left averaging 11.9 points per game.
