Per a report from ESPN’s foremost thesaurus user (and NBA insider) Adrian Wojnarowski, the Atlanta Hawks have filled one of the team’s pair of Two-Way spots for next season, signing St. Bonaventure point guard Jaylen Adams to a deal in the wake of last night’s NBA Draft.

Adams played all four years of his collegiate career at St. Bonaventure, starting all but one game at point guard. In 2017-18, he was named Atlantic 10 Co-Player of the Year and made three All-Atlantic 10 First Teams in his sophomore, junior, and senior seasons with the Bonnies.
In keeping with the theme of general manager Travis Schlenk’s 2018 draft, Adams is a phenomenal outside shooter: he finished in the 86th percentile nationwide on jump shots last season, per Synergy, and was even better in catch-and-shoot situations, scoring a phenomenal 1.38 points per possession on those looks.
Atlanta’s incumbent Two-Way players are Josh Magette and Andrew White —though one of them will have to be renounced to make room for Adams come July. It is likely that Adams will play with the Hawks in Utah and Las Vegas during NBA Summer League, but there has been no confirmation of that as of this writing.
