On Friday, The Vertical’s Shams Charania reported that the Atlanta Hawks have signed rookie Tyler Dorsey to a two-year deal. According to Charania, Dorsey’s deal is fully guaranteed.

The Hawks picked the former Oregon star with the 41st overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

This comes on the heels of the news that Hawks shooting guard Tim Hardaway Jr. signed an offer sheet worth $71 million with the New York Knicks, more money than his dad made in his entire career.

After Dorsey was drafted, Hawks general manger Travis Schlenk said that he thought there was a good chance of Dorsey making the team, so they must like what they see so far.

In Dorsey’s NBA Summer League debut on Friday, he scored two points as the Hawks dropped a close one to the Brooklyn Nets, 75-72.

Atlanta’s next game will be on Sunday as the Hawks take on the New Orlenas Pelicans at Cox Arena. The game will air at 1:00 PM PT on NBATV.
