Sticks in Atlanta with two-way deal
Forrest spent the 2022-23 campaign with the Hawks on a two-way deal, averaging 2.3 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 12.0 minutes per game across 23 NBA appearances (three starts). The undrafted point guard out of Florida State was better during limited action in the G League, averaging 16.7 points, 6.6 assists, 5.9 rebounds and 2.3 steals in 31.0 minutes per game across seven appearances (six starts). Forrest figures to handle a similar role in 2023-24.

Heading to Atlanta
Matthews spent the past two seasons in Milwaukee and had a slightly inconsistent role, averaging 4.3 points and 2.0 rebounds in 18.0 minutes per game. He'll have an opportunity to carve out minutes off the bench in Atlanta during his age-37 season.

Nabs Exhibit 10 deal
Joiner didn't hear his name called in the draft after completing a productive six-year collegiate career that included stops at Cal State Bakersfield and Ole Miss, but the Hawks saw enough potential in the undersized guard to reserve a spot for him in training camp. Though the 24-year-old will get the opportunity to battle for a spot on the Hawks' opening night roster, he's more likely to begin his professional career with the G League's College Park Skyhawks. Joiner recently suited up for the Hawks' entry in the Las Vegas Summer League, averaging 4.3 points and 1.3 rebounds in 12.0 minutes per game over four appearances.
