Another player from the Atlanta Hawks Summer League roster has made a decision on where to play next season. This time it’s Trevor Releford.
Releford has decided to forgo NBA opportunities for a chance to play more minutes overseas and has signed an agreement with Polish team King Wilki Morskie, according to the Polish team’s official Twitter account, which issued a warm welcome the former Alabama guard.

Trevor Releford played well with the Atlanta Hawks’ Summer League team in July and averaged 6.8 points per game on 52% shooting from the field in five games.
Releford played the role of 6th man for the Hawks. He found himself having his minutes increased almost every game and really found a nice groove in the tournament round.
Releford is the second NBA Summer League standout for Atlanta to decided to play overseas next season, the first being Stephen Holt, who agreed to a three-year, $20 million deal to play in Germany.
While Holt was invited to the Hawks’ training camp but decided to turn down the offer, there is no information on whether Releford was given the same opportunity to go to training camp.
