Hawks Assign Jenkins, Scott to D-League
The Hawks assigned rookies John Jenkins and Mike Scott to the NBA Development League Saturday. They will play with the Bakersfield (Calif.) Jam, the Hawks’ D-League affiliate.
The length of the stay has yet to be determined but it’s very possible they won’t be gone for an extended period of time.
According to a new rule this season, first- and second-year players can have unlimited assignments to the D-League. The prior rule only allowed for a player to be assigned to the league three times.
