Nevertheless, the contract with the Hawks of the former Chicago player, OKC and therefore of the Sixers is not guaranteed, teaches us the insider of The Athletic Chris Kirschner on Twitter. The Frenchman, little used by Brooklyn during the last play-offs, will therefore have to be convincing from the training camp of the Georgian franchise, in the same way that he will not have to relax the bridle during the preseason games that Atlanta, like other NBA franchises, will play with a roster reduced to fifteen elements, the two players under two-way contracts excepted. With the Hawks only having fourteen players under contract, Luwawu-Cabarrot, who was turning 6.4 points per game with the Nets last year in the regular season and coming out of a high-profile Olympic tournament, can still show up. optimistic. The ball is in his court.
