The Atlanta Hawks and center DeWayne Dedmon agreed to a two-year, $14 million dollar contract and the second year is a Player Option. Dedmon is a great role player in the front court who can defend and rebound. He brings great size for the Hawks, who lack a lot of front court depth on the current roster. Dedmon contributed solid minutes off the bench and was very effective during his time in San Antonio.
Personally, I selected Dewayne Dedmon as one of the free agent targets Atlanta should pursue. Last season, he averaged (5.1) Points Per Game and (6.5) Rebounds Per Game. We should expect his role to be bigger in Atlanta this season.
