Former South Carolina Gamecocks guard AJ Lawson will reportedly be signing a training camp contract with the Atlanta Hawks, according to Keith Smith of Spotrac.

Lawson, who went undrafted this year, played two games with the Miami Heat in the California Classic before joining the Hawks for the Las Vegas Summer League. He averaged 4.5 points, four rebounds and 1.8 assists in four games with the Hawks.

The thought is Lawson will appear with the Hawks in training camp and then be cut and eventually funneled to their NBA G League affiliate, the College Park Skyhawks, where he will spend the season.

Lawson will now have the opportunity to develop in the NBA G League this season with the Skyhawks. He worked extensively on his playmaking ability last season at South Carolina and spent much of the pre-draft process improving his shot from all over the floor.
