The Atlanta Hawks are preparing to play in the Utah Summer League tomorrow night (v Memphis, 7 p.m.) and the team now has there three rookies — Trae Young, Kevin Huerter, and Omari Spellman — signed, sealed and delivered after all three signed their rookie contracts at the team’s practice facility this weekend.

Along with the rookies, second-year guard Jaylen Adams, a two-way contract player signed late last season, signed another two-way contract with the team. Adams played six games for the Hawks while spending time with the Erie Bayhawks in the G League.

Teams are allowed to have as many as two two-way players on the roster during the season meaning Adams will spend time in both Atlanta and Erie this coming season.

The team recently released veteran guard Isaiah Taylor (6.6 points, 3.1 assists per game in 67 games).
