The Atlanta Hawks will round out their 15-man roster by signing G-League shooting guard B.J. Johnson to a 10-day contract, according to Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Johnson, undrafted out of La Salle in 2018, was in training camp with the Orlando Magic last fall, then waived when the regular season tipped off.

He has played this season for the Lakeland Magic, Orlando's G-League affiliate, averaging 14.8 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.4 steals in 37 games (30 starts), shooting 46.4 percent from the floor, 42.6 percent from beyond the 3-point arc and 83.7 percent from the free-throw line.

The 10-day deal of Ohio State and Dayton product Jordan Sibertwill expire Friday for the Hawks.
