Atlanta Hawks sign Cam Reddish and Charlie Brown Jr.

The Atlanta Hawks have signed rookie forward Cam Reddish, the team announced today. Reddish was selected by the Hawks in the first round (10th overall) of the 2019 NBA Draft. Per team policy, terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The 6’8” Reddish averaged 13.5 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.6 steals in 36 appearances (35 starts) as a freshman at Duke in 2018-19. The Norristown, PA native scored in double figures on 23 occasions, including eight 20-point games, and led the Blue Devils with a .772 FT%. He was an honorable mention All-ACC selection, finishing ninth in the conference in steals per game. He earned a bronze medal at the 2017 FIBA U19 Men’s Basketball World Cup as a member of Team USA, averaging 10.7 points and 4.3 rebounds in seven contests.

Reddish was a McDonald’s All-American and Mr. Pennsylvania following his senior season at Westtown School in West Chester, PA. He will wear No. 22.

The Atlanta Hawks have also signed rookie Charlie Brown Jr. to a two-way contract, the team announced today. Per team policy, terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Brown Jr., a 6’7” forward, played two years at Saint Joseph’s, and as a sophomore this past season, averaged 19.0 points (leading the A-10), 6.2 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.1 steals in 35.6 minutes (.430 FG%, .356 3FG%, .845 FT%) en route to Second Team All-A-10 Honors. He scored 1,006 career points, becoming the fifth Saint Joseph’s player to reach the 1,000 career point mark in two seasons.

Brown Jr. attended St. Thomas More (CT) in 2015-16, helping lead the club to a berth in the National Prep Championship game. He previously attended George Washington High School in Philadelphia, where he was MVP of the Public League B Division in 2014-15. He will wear No. 4.

Only players with three-or-fewer years of NBA experience are permitted to sign two-way contracts. Per league rules, teams are allowed to have up to two two-way players on their roster at any given time, in addition to their 15-man regular season roster. A two-way player for the Hawks will primarily play for the team’s new NBA G League Affiliate, the College Park Skyhawks, but can spend up to 45 days with Atlanta, not including any time prior to the start of College Park’s training camp and at the conclusion of their season.
