Hawks, DeAndre Kane Commit To Summer League, Plan To Discuss Possible Deal In July

Jun 18, 2015 11:05 PM

After private workouts this week, the Atlanta Hawks and guard DeAndre Kane have reached a summer league agreement for Las Vegas and plan to discuss further on a possible deal in July, league sources told RealGM.

Kane, a former stand out at Iowa State, spent the past few days working out in Atlanta and settled upon a potential future with the Hawks. Now, Atlanta will integrate the 6-foot-4 product into their summer program and Kane will attempt to increase his stock in dialogue through performances in summer league.

The NBA's free agency period doesn't begin until July 1.

In 40 games with Antwerp in Belgium and Krasny in the Eurocup, Kane averaged 12.2 points, 5.7 rebounds and 3.5 assists while shooting 44 percent from the field. Kane, 26, had his strongest stretch during the EuroChallenge with Antwerp, scoring 14.4 points along with 5.7 rebounds and five assists.

As a recruit of Fred Hoiberg at Iowa State, Kane had averages of 17.1 points, 6.8 rebounds and 5.7 assists in his senior year. The Chicago Bulls had a level of interest in Kane, sources said, but his workouts in Atlanta led to a commitment Thursday night.

Kane went to summer league with the Los Angeles Lakers a year ago after going unselected in the 2014 NBA draft. He spent his first three college seasons at Marshall.

Royce White Close With Clippers On Summer League Commitment

Jun 5, 2015 1:16 PM

Royce White is closing on a commitment to join the Los Angeles Clippers to make his NBA comeback in the July Summer League, league sources told RealGM.

White has considered interest from several organizations, including the Chicago Bulls, San Antonio Spurs and New Orleans Pelicans, but gained trust with the Clippers’ front office through dialogue with brass members.

White is nearing a commitment to the Clippers, but the 6-foot-8 forward will stay away from signing any sort of free-agent deal in order to showcase himself for the NBA’s other 29 teams. He has spent the year training in Minnesota with trainer Chris Carr.

The No. 16 overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, White has logged three games in the NBA with the Sacramento Kings in 2014. Along with the Kings, White has spent time on the roster of the Philadelphia 76ers and his drafted team, the Houston Rockets.

White, 24, was a tremendous two-way talent coming out of Iowa State as a sophomore, but became the league’s face for anxiety issues. Still, White has made clear he has no fear or issues with flying, but rather a previous preference to travel via road when possible.
