Free agent forward Daniel Hamilton has agreed to a one-year, guaranteed deal with the Atlanta Hawks, league sources tell ESPN. Hamilton, 22, was on a two-way contract with Oklahoma City last season.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) July 25, 2018
Hamilton was drafted with the 56th overall pick by the Denver Nuggets in 2016 and traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder on draft night, where he spent one year in the G League before signing a Two-Way deal before the 2017-18 season. He played just six games for the big club last season to go along with 45 games with the Blue, the Thunder’s G League affiliate. The Thunder opted against tendering a qualifying offer to the two-year college player from the University of Connecticut, making him an unrestricted free agent this summer.
Hamilton’s deal will be a fully guaranteed minimum contract with Atlanta, netting him roughly $1.35 million. With that, the Hawks have completed the majority of their offseason work, as Hamilton’s contract is the 15th fully guaranteed deal on their books.
With two Two-Way contracts already signed (Jaylen Adams and Alex Poythress), the Hawks have three openings for training camp deals, but unless a relatively large shakeup is coming after camp, the squad appears to be set for the beginning of the 2018-19 season.
