Adrian Wojnarowski tweets that Damion James, after two injury-filled years with the Nets, has signed a one-year contract with the Hawks. Specifically, Woj wrote, "Free agent forward Damion James has reached agreement on a one-year deal with Atlanta, agent Mark Bartelstein told Yahoo! Sports." It's uncertain if the deal is guaranteed or not.

James was drafted by the Hawks in 2010, then traded to the Nets for the rights to Jordan Crawford and Tibor Pleiss whose rights were sold to the Thunder. After a strong summer league performance, James fractured his foot in the first game he started, ending his season. Last season, he had to have the screw in his foot replaced, again ending his season. James played only 32 games in two years.

In a tweet, James thanked the Nets and their fans. "I wanna THANK tha Nets for giving me a opportunity to live my Dream due to injuries I wasn't able to deliver! To all the TRUE Nets Fans! Sry"
