Hawks sign No. 2 pick Marvin Williams

Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) – The Atlanta Hawks signed Marvin Williams to a
contract Wednesday after selecting the 6’9″ forward with the second overall
pick in June’s NBA Draft. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The North Carolina product is the last of the top-10 draft picks to sign.

Williams, who is the highest Atlanta selection since the team picked first in
1975, played one year for the Tar Heels.

The 19-year-old Williams averaged 11.3 points for UNC and was second in
rebounding with a 6.6 average. His basket with 1:26 remaining against Illinois
in the NCAA title game gave the Tar Heels the lead for good.
