Atlanta Hawks sign Will Bynum, Ryan Kelly to training camp contracts

The Atlanta Hawks have 15 guys under guaranteed contracts heading into training camp, the max number they carry into the regular season. Their roster is set.

But the Hawks are rounding out their training camp roster with some veterans — Will Bynum and Ryan Kelly are coming to camp, reports Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The Hawks have signed Will Bynum and Ryan Kelly to non-guaranteed contracts to set their training camp roster, according to a person familiar with the situation…

Bynum, who played at Georgia Tech, is a veteran of eight NBA seasons with the Warriors, Pistons, and Wizards. The 33-year-old guard appeared in seven games with the Wizards last season after signing two 10-day contracts. He played in China before and after the stints….

Kelly (6-11, 230 pounds) was a second-round pick (No. 48) by the Lakers in 2013 out of Duke. The 25-year-old power forward appeared in 147 games over three seasons with the Lakers. He averaged 4.2 points and 3.4 rebounds in 13.1 minutes over 36 games last season.

Both of these guys likely ends up overseas this season, but the will make a little money in camp and maybe turn the heads of another GM who does have a roster spot available.
