Atlanta Hawks second-round pick Pape Sy is back from the D-League. Hawks spokesman Arthur Triche tweeted that the 6-foot-7, 225-pound Sy has returned to Atlanta after a stint with the Utah Flash of the NBDL. He will remain with the Hawks for the rest of the season.
The 22-year-old swingman was sent down to the NBA's minor leagues to work on his game. Sy appeared in 23 games (11 starts) with the Flash, posting averages of 8.0 points and 3.4 rebounds per game. He averaged just over 22 minutes a game.
Sy, who was selected with the 53rd overall pick in the 2010 NBA draft, has yet to appear in a game for the Hawks this season. Prior to getting drafted, the Loudeac, France native played five seasons with STB Le Harve of the Ligue Nationale de Basketball in his home country. He averaged 5.2 points and 1.7 rebounds per game in his final season with the team.
