This is great news because the Hawks’ other options at guard were Brandon Jennings, Mo Williams, and Aaron Brooks. Not exactly a great class of option Bs.
“We are happy to bring Jeff back to our team. He has improved each year of his career and continues to get better,” Ferry said. “At 25, he’s already been a key contributor on a playoff team and we look forward to seeing him develop into even more of a leader on our team.”
