Hawks sign Poythress to two-way pact

Alex Poythress has signed a two-way contract with the Hawks.

The Atlanta Hawks are signing free-agent forward Alex Poythress to a two-way contract, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.

Poythress appeared in 25 games for the Indiana Pacers last season on a two-way contract, averaged 1.0 points and 0.7 rebounds in 4.2 minutes a game, his deal being converted to a regular contract Dec. 28. He was waived by the Pacers on July 6.

The 6-foot-7, 238-pounder out of Kentucky was undrafted in 2016. He played most of that season for the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, the Pacers’ G League affiliate, before being signed by the Philadelphia 76ers for the final six games of the season.

Poythress joins Jaylen Adams as two-way players for the Hawks.
