The Hawks have added Adonis Thomas and James Johnson to their training camp roster as non-roster camp invites. These additions bring the Hawks training camp roster to 20 players. Thomas was an undrafted free agent from this year’s draft class after leaving Memphis after his sophomore season. Thomas averaged 11.7 points and 4.5 rebounds as a sophomore and played on the Hawks’ Summer League team in Las Vegas in July. At 6’6″, 232 lbs., Thomas has positional flexibility and will provide an option at shooting guard and small forward during camp.

Johnson is a four-year NBA veteran small forward that spent last season with the Sacramento Kings. Drafted 16th overall in 2009 by the Bulls, Johnson has averaged 6.3 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.0 blocks, and 0.8 steals in 18.3 minutes per game. Johnson has played for the Bulls, Raptors and Kings in his four year career. Johnson provides a lot of length at 6’9″ and is a quality perimeter defender at small forward and will compete with Thomas and Damien Wilkins for a spot alongside DeMarre Carroll and Kyle Korver.
