The Atlanta Hawks and free agent Kent Bazemore have agreed to a four-year, $70 million contract, ESPN’s Brian Windhorst reports.

The Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Lakers offered Bazemore deals worth $72 million over four years, but he turned them down in order to return to the Hawks, TNT’s David Aldridge reports.

The Hawks also agreed to terms on a three-year, $70.5 million deal with Dwight Howard on Friday, Shams Charania of The Vertical reported.

Bazemore has spent the last two seasons in Atlanta, where he averaged 8.4 points, 4 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game.
