Hawks sign second round pick Pape Sy to a contract this morning, he will wear #19.
As of this writing, there is no official press release stating the terms of the deal are undisclosed.

UPDATE (2:29pm):
Atlanta Hawks Executive Vice President and General Manager Rick Sund has announced this afternoon that the team has signed guard/forward Pape Sy to a contract. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not released.

“Our European scout (Loize Milosavljevic) did a great job in recommending Pape to us and once he participated in our pre-draft workouts, our scouts and coaches were very impressed with his abilities,” said Sund. “Although he was hampered by an Achilles injury during summer league workouts, we were encouraged with his ability, athleticism and competitiveness.”

“He is a talented 6-7 backcourt player who can play multiple positions,” said Assistant General Manager Dave Pendergraft, who worked throughout the process to get Sy here in time for training camp. “Sy’s an interesting prospect who is determined to play in the NBA.”

Brad --

I've reason to believe Pape Sy could bet out Jordan Crawford for minutes much less Jamal.
