Darvin Ham Signs With Hawks

The Atlanta Hawks have signed free agent forward Darvin Ham to a contract, it was announced on Tuesday by VP/GM Pete Babcock. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"Darvin's a player we've always had interest in, because of his high-energy and competitive toughness," said Babcock, "and we are looking forward to bringing those elements, in addition to his basketball abilities to our franchise." Ham's arrival in Atlanta will reunite the 6' 7" forward with a couple of familiar faces from his days in Milwaukee -- recently acquired All-Star Glenn "Big Dog" Robinson and assistant coach Terry Stotts.

In three seasons with the Bucks, he averaged 4.4 points and 3.7 rebounds in 134 games, while shooting 54.9% from the field. Last season, Ham's toughness and durability enabled him to play in a career-high 1,208 minutes of action, and in 70 games, he recorded 4.3 ppg and 2.9 rpg. After five NBA seasons, he has career numbers of 3.4 points and 2.8 rebounds, in addition to making 54.4% of his field goal attempts.

Never drafted by an NBA franchise, Ham played for the Florida Sharks in the United States Basketball League (USBL) in 1996, before the Denver Nuggets signed him as a free agent on October 1st, 1996. After splitting time that season (36 games) with the Nuggets and the Indiana Pacers, he spent one season (1997 - 1998) with the Washington Wizards and one year overseas playing for Coviran-C.Alhambra in the Spanish League (1998 - 1999) prior to joining the Bucks.

Ham, 29, began his collegiate career at Otero Junior College and following one season, transferred to Texas Tech where he averaged 8.1 points and 5.1 rebounds.
