Hawks agree to two-way contract with St. Joe’s Charlie Brown

The Hawks agreed to a two-way contract with St. Joseph’s Charlie Brown after the forward was not selected in the NBA draft Thursday.

Brown, 6-foot-7, averaged and Atlantic-10 best 19.0 points and 6.2 rebounds a game last season for St. Joe’s. He was an early entry candidate. He played two seasons and missed another with a wrist injury.

The Hawks had two players – Jaylen Adams and Alex Poythress – under two-way contracts last season. Adams later signed an NBA contract.

Post draft, the Hawks will also reach agreement players to fill out its roster for next month’s Las Vegas Summer League.
