The Atlanta Hawks made two new additions to their training camp roster on Friday, signing guard Will Bynum and forward Ryan Kelly to non-guaranteed contracts that allows them to come to camp with the team, per Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Just days after working out Bynum, the Hawks have decided to bring the 33-year-old guard to training camp. Sans a brief few months with the Washington Wizards at the end of the 2014-15 season, Bynum has played primarily for the Guangdong Southern Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association over the past few years. (He first went over to replace then-high school phenom Emmanuel Mudiay, and went on to average over 22 points per game.)

Bynum split his collegiate career between the University of Arizona and Georgia Tech before going undrafted in the 2005 NBA Draft. He played just 15 games with the Golden State Warriors before finding his niche beginning in 2008 with the Detroit Pistons. Over six years with Detroit, Bynum averaged 8.4 points and 3.4 assists per game.

Kelly had spent his entire professional career with the Los Angeles Lakers organization after being drafted in the second round of the 2013 NBA Draft out of Duke. His first two seasons with the purple and gold saw him start 57 games as the Lakers suffered through lean years of rebuilding. But injuries limited him to just 36 games last season and his contract was not renewed upon the completion of his rookie deal. For his career, Kelly is averaging 6.5 points and 3.3 rebounds per game in just over 20 minutes per game of action.
