  • Hawks Sign Kent Bazemore To 4 Years $70 Million

    Kent Bazemore agrees to return to Atlanta Hawks on 4-year, $70 million deal

    The Atlanta Hawks have reached a verbal agreement to re-sign wing Kent Bazemore on a four-year deal worth $70 million, his agent, Austin Walton, said.

    The fourth year of the deal is a player option, league sources told ESPN.

    Bazemore, who turned 27 on Friday, is a defensive specialist who has worked his way up after going undrafted. He had several suitors, including the Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Lakers.

    Bazemore declined four-year, $72 million offers from the Rockets and Lakers, a source told ESPN, confirming an report.

    Bazemore played 23 games for the Lakers after they traded for him in 2014, and a source said he "seriously considered" their offer before deciding to return to the Hawks.

    Bazemore averaged 11.6 points and 5.1 rebounds per game for the Hawks last season.
