Updates on Alpha Kaba, Isaia Cordinier, and Andrew White III

The Atlanta Hawks currently have three under the radar prospects worth keeping an eye on. 

Alpha Kaba

The Atlanta Hawks 2017 60th overall selection Alpha Kaba has been playing overseas since playing with the Atlanta Hawks summer league team this past summer. In a recent game for ASVEL Basket, Kaba scored 13 points and acquired 5 rebounds and 3 steals. Alpha Kaba has steadily improved since he has been overseas. Kaba has a high motor and has been active around the glass for ASVEL. Alpha Kaba has a decent chance at making the team next year as the Atlanta Hawks are due for another roster turnover.


Isaia Cordinier

Isaia Cordinier was the 44th overall selection for the Atlanta Hawks in the 2016 NBA draft. Since failing to make the team in 2016, Cordinier has been playing in the LNB Pro A league for the Antibes Sharks. He appeared in 30 games for the Sharks in the 2016-17 season, averaging 6.5 points and 2.8 rebounds. Isaia Cordinier was feeling some discomfort in his knee and has decided to have season ending knee surgery. He hopes to recover in time to try out for the Atlanta Hawks next season.


Andrew White III

Andrew White III of the Maine Red Claws has been signed to a two-way contract by the Atlanta Hawks. Prior to this signing, Josh Magette had been the only player on a two-way contract since Tyler Cavanaugh was converted to a multi-year contract earlier in the year. In 24 games with the Maine Red Claws, Andrew White III averaged 16.0 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 34.0 minutes. Andrew White III is a sharpshooter that has been lighting up the G-League shooting 40% from beyond the arc. Look for Andrew White to see some time in the NBA after trade deadline.
