An Exhibit 10 contract can be converted into a two-way contract. Although, the roster is full right now. If the front office opted to pursue a potential conversion, it would occur during the 2022-23 season.
Trent Forrest and Jarrett Culver occupy the two-way spots on the Hawks. The training camp roster allows no more than 20 players.
