The Hawks signed forward Andrew White III to a two-way contract on Monday. White’s contract allows for a limited number of days with the Hawks, with the balance of time spent at their G-League affiliate in Erie, Pa. He will report to Erie.

White, 24, wasn’t selected in the 2017 draft out of Syracuse (he also played at Kansas and Nebraska). White played 24 games this season for Maine of the G-League with averages of 34 minutes, 16 points and 5.4 rebounds over 24 games. White, a 6-foot-7 wing, shot 40 percent on 3-pointers (62 of 155) for Maine.

The Hawks also have Josh Magette on a two-way contract for the maximum of two such players and a full roster of 17 players. A two-way contract became available to the Hawks when they signed Tyler Cavanaugh to an NBA deal.
