Hawks Reportedly Reach Buyout With Pape Sy's French Team

According to The Hoops Market, an international basketball website, the Atlanta Hawks have bought out the contract of Pape Sy, whom they selected with the 53rd overall pick in this year’s NBA Draft, from his French club. This move may clear the way for Sy to join the Hawks this season.

As The Hoops Market notes, Sy averaged just 5.2 points and 1.7 points for Le Havre. The pick perplexed draft expert Jonathan Givony on draft night, prompting him to make this observation:

Pape Sy at 54 to Atlanta, like I said a little bit earlier. Dude is not in our database. Played 14 minutes per game on a bad team in Franceless than a minute ago via web


Though Sy’s game is a bit of a question mark, it appears nearly certain that he’ll at least have an opportunity to join the Hawks in training camp.
