Pape Sy is expected to play for the Hawks during Summer League.
Sy is built like an NBA swingman (6'6", 210 lbs.) but he plays like a combo guard and has limited offensive skills. He struggled in both the D-League and France last season and we don't expect him to make the Hawks' regular season roster. Their decision to draft him No. 53 overall in 2010 was strange, and their decision to buy out his French contract and sign him in 2011 was even stranger. Sat, Jun 16, 2012 05:23:00 PM

Pape Sy - G/F - Hawks

Pape Sy is on his way back to France and will sign with Gravelines-Dunkerque.

This was an expected move and Sy will return to playing professionally in France. It's possible he could earn himself a training camp invite next year if he shows out well.

Pape Sy - G/F - Hawks

Pape Sy will return to his French team if he doesn't get a contract in the NBA by January 13.

Sy was waived by Atlanta just before the season began and hasn't garnered much interest on the open market yet. He'll wait to see if an injury opens an opportunity with another club, but it sounds like he's headed back to France at this time.

Pape Sy - G/F - Hawks

Pape Sy, who was last seen playing in France, is back with the Hawks and will likely be Jeff Teague's back up at point guard while Kirk Hinrich is injured.

Sy is unproven and a longshot to have any fantasy value. But if Teague somehow struggles, he could get some run. Just keep an eye on him early in the season.

Pape Sy - G/F - Hawks

Former Hawks forward Pape Sy has reportedly agreed to a deal with the French team BCM Gravelines.

Sy, a French citizen, was the 53rd pick in the 2010 draft. He bounced between the NBA and the D-League for a while and never managed to earn a steady role in Atlanta. His departure is hardly a blip on the radar, even during these lean times for NBA news.

Pape Sy - G/F - Hawks

Hawks recalled G/F Pape Sy from the NBADL.

Sy will be with the Hawks for the rest of the season. The raw project from France is a poor bet to crack the rotation.

Pape Sy - G/F - Hawks

The Hawks have assigned guard Pape Sy to the Utah Flash in the D-League.

Sy hasn't set foot on the court during a game for Atlanta, and will get some much-needed experience playing in the D-League.

Pape Sy - G/F - Hawks

Pape Sy could be sent to the NBADL soon, according to coach Larry Drew.

Sy is a raw prospect from France that needs minutes. The second-round pick is yet to appear in a game this season.

Pape Sy - G/F - Hawks

Haws G Pape Sy (back) worked out on the court Monday for the first time since the start of camp.

Sy is a major project that won't be part of the Hawks' rotation this year. He could eventually have a role down the line if Jamal Crawford is allowed to walk in free agency.

Pape Sy - G/F - Hawks

Pape Sy, who has been out since the beginning of training camp with a back injury, said he still doesn't know when he'll return to practice.

"It’s sore," he said. "It’s getting better." He's buried on the depth chart and could have a future in the league, it just won't be this year. He should not be rostered in any re-draft leagues.

Pape Sy - G/F - Hawks

The Hawks announced Wednesday that they have officially signed Pape Sy.

Sy is a promising defensive player, but it's unlikely that he'll see anything resembling significant playing time this season. As a result, he can safely be ignored for the upcoming season, even in deep fantasy leagues.

Pape Sy - G/F - Hawks

The Hawks have finally reached a buyout agreement with French club Le Havre for Pape Sy.

Sy, 22, was the No. 53 overall pick in June's draft. Although he's not an immediate threat to Jamal Crawford's leverage, Sy projects as a shooting guard off the bench. He'll be a developmental player this season.

Pape Sy - G/F - Hawks

There is still a chance that rookie forward Pape Sy will join the Hawks for 2010-11.

Sy is set to report to camp for French club Le Havre but the Hawks are working to buy out of the final year of his contract. Even if they succeed, it's likely that Sy would spend most of his rookie year in the D-League.

Pape Sy - G/F - Hawks

The Hawks are trying to get second-round SF Pape Sy in Atlanta for training camp.

Sy is trying to get a buyout from his French League team this week. The Hawks would probably like to see him develop in the NBADL.

Pape Sy - G/F - Hawks

The Hawks drafted little known small forward Pape Sy from France with the 53rd pick.

The last time they had a 6-7 forward from France (Dominique Wilkins), it worked out just fine. We doubt Sy will see the light of day in the ATL, but you never know. Pronounced "Pop-sye," he'll compete with Magnum Rolle and Tiny Gallon for the best name in the draft, but we think Tiny wins that one hands down.
