AT­LANTA » The At­lanta Hawks have signed for­ward Thomas Robin­son, who last ap­peared in the NBA in the 2016-17 sea­son with the Los An­ge­les Lak­ers.

The 27-year- old Robin­son spent last sea­son in Rus­sia.

Robin­son played in col­lege at Kansas and was the No. 5 over­all pick by Sacra­mento in the 2012 draft. He has played in 313 ca­reer games in five sea­sons with the Kings, Hous­ton, Port­land, Philadel­phia, Brook­lyn and the Lak­ers.
