Hawks Sign Shelvin Mack to Second 10-Day
It was announced by Atlanta Hawks GM Danny Ferry that the Hawks have signed Shelvin Mack to a second 10-day contract. Mack, the 6'3" point guard who led the Butler Bulldogs to the NCAA championship game two straight seasons, played in five games for the Hawks during his first 10-day with the team. In his five games for the Hawks, Mack averaged 1.6 points per game, 0.8 rebounds per game, and 0.6 assists per game. In his highest-scoring game for the Hawks, he scored seven points. His stats haven't been as good as Jannero Pargo's were when the Hawks brought him in for two 10-days, but it is just another 10-day that the Hawks are giving Mack, so they're not committing to him. At this point, if I were Ferry, I wouldn't sign him for the rest of the year. However, they might as well give him 10 more days to try to prove himself, so I am happy with this decision and wish Mack luck.
