The Atlanta Hawks formerly announced the signings of first-round picks Taurean Prince and DeAndre Bembry along with free agents Kris Humphries, Jarrett Jack and Malcolm Delaney on Friday.

The Hawks acquired the draft rights to Prince who was the 12th pick in the 2016 Draft in a three-team trade involving the Indiana Pacers and Utah Jazz. Atlanta sent Jeff Teague to Indiana with George Hill going to Utah and the No. 12 pick coming to Atlanta. The Hawks used the 21st pick in the Draft to select Bembry out of St Joseph's.

Humphries appeared in 21 games for the Hawks last season averaging 6.4 points and 3.4 rebounds. Terms of the deal weren't announced but he reportedly agreed to a one-year deal worth $4 million.

"We're thrilled to be able to bring Kris back to Atlanta," Mike Budenholzer said. "He quickly fit in with our team last season and played an important role on the court and in the locker room."

Jack played just 32 games with the Brooklyn Nets last season before suffering a torn ACL. He was released by Brooklyn earlier this summer and reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with Atlanta at the league minimum.

"Jarrett brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our backcourt," Budenholzer said. "His leadership and versatility will be important to our team."

Delaney spent the last five seasons playing overseas. He spent last season in Russia where he helped lead Lokomotiv Kuban to the Euroleague Final Four. He averaged 14.6 points, 4.9 assists and 3.6 rebounds in 59 games.

"Malcolm is a player we've watched closely and built a relationship with over the last few years," said Hawks General Manager Wes Wilcox. "He's played at the highest level internationally and won with every team he's played for. We are excited to welcome Malcolm to the Hawks family."
