Patterson spent last season playing in Turkey and showed improvement in Summer League earlier this month. He averaged 13.1 points in seven games in Vegas while shooting a crisp 45 percent from the field. Petteway averaged 10.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists. He shot 39 percent from the field and 29 percent from three-point range.
According to Vivlamore, Patterson's deal is partially guaranteed meaning that even if he is cut, the Hawks will owe him a set amount of money.
Atlanta currently has 14 players under contract for next season and has one open spot remaining on the roster.
Petteway's contract is also partially guaranteed
