Hawks News: Welcome to Atlanta Mays, Okongwu, Knight, Bogdanovic, and Gallnari

It was a busy day for the Atlanta Hawks, the team announced on Tuesday the signing of Chino, Calif. native rookie forward/center Onyeka Okongwu, rookie guard Skylar Mays and rookie forward/center Nathan Knight. Mays and Knight have been signed to two-way contracts.

The Hawks also acquired forward Danilo Gallinari (da-KNEE-lo gal-in-ARE-ee) and cash considerations from the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for a conditional 2025 second-round pick in a sign-and-trade transaction.

“Danilo checks a lot of boxes for what we have prioritized. We wanted to add productive veterans and high-level shooting to our group and he provides both. At his size, he is one of the league’s most versatile and efficient scorers and he has proven to be the type of veteran you want in your locker room,” said Hawks President of Basketball Operations and General Manager Travis Schlenk.

Announced shortly afterwards the team  added restricted free agent guard Bogdan Bogdanovic to the roster. Per team policy, terms of the agreements were not disclosed.

“Bogdan has a great feel for the game, and we expect him to be a great fit for us with his high-level offensive skill set, experience and toughness,” said Schlenk.
