The Atlanta Hawks have signed rookie guard Jaylen Morris to a 10-day contract, according to a report from ESPN.
Morris is 6-foot-5. He went undrafted out of Molloy (N.Y.) College but made his way to the Erie BayHawks of the G League — where he averaged 12.6 points and 4.8 rebounds in 39 games.
“During four seasons at Molloy, Morris averaged 14.2 points, 5.6 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.3 steals. He recorded career bests of 19.9 points, 1.6 steals and 55-percent shooting from the field during his senior season of 2016-2017, when he helped lead the Lions to the East Coast Conference championship game before falling to St. Thomas Aquinas in overtime, 97-86.”
