The Hawks announced the signings of Will Bynum, Ryan Kelly and Richard Solomon to their training camp roster on Tuesday. All three signings were previously reported by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Bynum, a Georgia Tech alum, is an eight-year NBA veteran who played with the Warriors, Pistons and Wizards. The guard most recently played seven games with the Wizards in 2015 as part of two 10-day contracts. He last played in China. Bynum was a member of Georgia Tech’s 2004 Final Four team.

Bynum posted the following on Twitter Tuesday after the announcement: “Extremely appreciative and thankful for the opportunity @ATLHawks has given me !!! #blessed #grinding.”

Kelly spent the past three years with the Lakers, who selected him in the second round of the 2013 draft out of Duke. The forward averaged 6.5 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 20.5 minutes in 147 NBA games.

Solomon played last season in Japan. The forward went undrafted out of California in 2014 and spent time in the NBA Development League with the Oklahoma City Blue.

Bynum will wear No. 6, Kelly will wear No. 30 and Solomon will wear No. 7.

The Hawks have a training camp roster of the maximum of 20 players. Camp begins on Monday with media day.
