The Atlanta Hawks will be an intriguing team at the 2017 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. Playoff rotation member Taurean Prince will join with fellow rising sophomore DeAndre Bembry on the squad and, with the infusion of talent added during the 2017 NBA Draft, there will be a bit of extra attention on the proceedings.
However, there will also be non-roster invitees and one such player will reportedly be forward Quincy Ford.

Ford, who stands at 6’8, played for the Jazz in the Las Vegas Summer League in 2016 and spent the 2016-2017 campaign with the Salt Lake City Stars of the D-League. In 26 games (15 starts), Ford averaged 4.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game while shooting 34 percent from the floor and 28 percent from three.
The former Northeastern standout completed his college eligibility after the 2015-2016 season, setting Ford up for a second professional campaign in 2017-2018. Other reported names for the Summer League roster include Josh Magette and Bryce Cotton. Hawks GM Travis Schlenk confirmed that 2016 second round pick Isaia Cordinier will be returning to Atlanta and playing in Summer League as well.
