The Atlanta Hawks have been holding workouts this week for players that could potentially be added to their training camp roster. Former California power forward Richard Solomon reportedly worked out with Atlanta twice this week and will be added to the camp roster according to Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Solomon is a 6-11 forward who played four-years in California and went undrafted at the end of the 2014 season. He played in the D-League in 2015 and spent last season in Japan where he averaged 11.2 points and 8.9 rebounds in 59 games for Toyota Alvark.

Solomon appeared in three games with the Phoenix Suns in the Orlando Summer League and then played four games for Oklahoma City in Las Vegas this summer.

The Hawks will open training camp on September 27 at the University of Georgia. The team will practice there through the 29th before shifting back to Philips Arena. The team will hold media day festivities on September 26.
