Back in Janurary, Andrew White III signed a Two-Way  contract with the Atlanta Hawks.

While White was new to the NBA, he had prior professional experience playing for the Maine Red Claws G-league team. White was averaging 16 points per game, 5.4 rebounds, 1.5 assists in 34 minutes of game play.

Before White entered the G-league, he played for Kansas, Nebraska, and Syracuse. White saw more action once transferring to Syracuse. He averaged 18.5 points per game, 4.6 rebounds, 1.1 assist and shot .4441% in the field during 37.2 minutes of game play. White went undrafted in the NBA later that year.

Later on the Maine Red Claws selected him to play before joining the Erie Bayhawks. White averagesd 15.1 points per game, 3.4 rebounds, and shot .465% in 26 minutes of play. White made his NBA debut with the Atlanta Hawks back in February. He scored a team high against the Detroit Pistons. White scored 15 points, 2 rebounds, and 1 assist in 17 minutes of play. White became the first Atlanta Hawks player to accomplish this since Rumeal Robinson made his NBA debut back in 1990 scoring 15+ points.

Andrew White has shown to show up when it is time. The two way contract allowed White the advantage and chance to hone in on his skills in the G league, while also being able to get time in with the Atlanta Hawks.
