The Hawks signed Wichita State guard Tyson Etienne to an Exhibit 10 contract on Monday afternoon.

Etienne will have a chance to compete at the Hawks’ training camp next month, as he looks to prove himself further.

An Exhibit 10 contract is a one-year, minimum-salary NBA contract with minimum guarantees ranging from $5,000 to $50,000. It gives the Hawks flexibility in terms of how they could sign Etienne to the team.

The Hawks could waive Etienne and assign him to the Skyhawks of the NBA G League. Should they come away from training camp impressed with Etienne, he could earn a two-way contract if they convert one of the players on a two-way contract to a standard deal.

The team reportedly signed Etienne shortly after June’s NBA draft, and the 6-foot-2 guard took advantage with a strong performance at Summer League in July. He averaged 10.2 points and 1.6 rebounds in 16.7 minutes over five games in Las Vegas.

Etienne spent three seasons at Wichita State, where averaged 13.2 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.1 steals in 30.4 minutes.
