Atlanta Hawks Sign Damien Wilkins For Remainder of Season

The Atlanta Hawks have signed Damien Wilkins for the remainder of the season. It's not been announced on the team's website but a press release has been sent to the outlets to which the Hawks send press releases.

Wilkins cost the Hawks $226,484 during his first stint with the team, $50,258 for each of his two 10-day contracts, and will cost (assuming my math is correct) about $515,000 more for the remainder of the season. Add it all up, and the Hawks will end up paying Wilkins about $10,000 less than the two-year veteran's minimum and will sit between $500,000 and $600,000 below the luxury tax line.

If my math is wrong, I'll run a correction once ShamSports is updated.
