Hawks sign Deyonta Davis to another 10-day contractThe Atlanta Hawks today decided to keep Deyonta Davis around a bit longer, making news today by signing the forward to a second 10-day contract.

As is often the case with players on 10-day deals, Davis has received little court time so far in this stretch, playing an average of 3.5 minutes in a total of two games.

With less than two weeks left in the regular season, teams who won't be in the playoffs are just riding things out, with their eye on the future. The Hawks are one such team. They're 27-48, which is the 12th best record in the Eastern conference through yesterday's games and didn't come close to reaching the postseason.

Two big bright spots emerged for Atlanta this season: the play of rookie guard Trae Young and second-year power forward John Collins. They'll be the team's building blocks heading into the offseason and beyond.

As for Davis, now in his third NBA season, he did some things to get noticed last year with the Grizzlies, averaging 5.8 points and 4.0 rebounds in 15.2 minutes of playing time.
