Atlanta Hawks are expected to sign Damion Lee of G-League’s Santa Cruz Warriors to a 10-day contract, league sources tell ESPN. Lee is engaged to the sister of Stephen Curry.— Chris Haynes (@ChrisBHaynes) March 12, 2018
Lee is a 6-foot-6 wing who split his college ball between Drexel and Louisville before going undrafted in 2016. Mostly known as a scorer, he averaged 15.8 points per game in the G League for Santa Cruz this season and while the three-point shot abandoned him this season, he was a 47 percent shooter from deep in 2016-17 with the Maine Red Claws. A career 89 percent free-throw shooter in the G League, it’s likely that he could become a consistent threat from beyond the three-point line.
It’s unknown at this point if Lee will be able to play in Tuesday’s game against Oklahoma City, but the Hawks could certainly use him, with Kent Bazemore, DeAndre’ Bembry, and Jaylen Morris out on the wing and Antonius Cleveland and Malcolm Delaney out at the guard positions. Lee can move between the 2 and 3, though he won’t be able to hold up against the biggest 3s in the league.
