Hawks Officially Sign Second-Round Pick Pape Sy

The Atlanta Hawks officially announced the signing of second-round draft choice Pape Sy today. Sy, the 53rd pick in this year’s NBA Draft, is now set to join the Hawks for training camp at the end of the month.

My colleague Bronn Tallant pointed out in this StoryStream last week that the Hawks reached a buyout agreement with Sy’s French club, Le Havre, so this news should come as no surprise.

The Hawks’ official release touts Sy’s size (the Hawks list him at 6-foot-7), versatility, and performance in pre-draft workouts. It also quotes assistant GM Dave Pendergraft as terming Sy “an interesting prospect.” Still, he only averaged 5.2 points per game in three years with Le Havre, so it doesn’t seem likely that he’ll be an immediate contributor in the NBA.
