Jul 18, 2016 12:51 PM

Isaia Cordinier will return to France to play in the French Pro A League for the 16-17 season with Antibes.

Cordinier was picked 40th overall by the Atlanta Hawks.

A team picking in the top half of the second round reneged on a promise to select Cordinier. Cordinier had wanted to come to the NBA immediately but he'll now likely join the Hawks for the 17-18 season.
