Hawks sign Ryan Kelly, Lamar Patterson to multiyear deals

ATLANTA -- The Hawks have signed guard Lamar Patterson and forward Ryan Kelly to multiyear contracts.

Patterson provides depth across the perimeter, including at point guard. He previously signed two 10-day contracts with the team, most recently on Feb. 8. He has averaged 2.3 points in four games.

The 6-foot-11 Kelly has played in nine games with the Hawks after signing on Oct. 31.

The Hawks now have their maximum 15 players. They traded forward Mike Scott to the Phoenix Suns on Thursday, leaving two vacant roster spots.

Patterson and Kelly are expected to be available when the Hawks play the Miami Heat on Friday night.
