Atlanta sign Isaac Humphries for rest of NBA season

I guess this is just a technical thing as the 10-day didn't extend quite the distance? Or maybe keeps him on the books for negotiations into next season?

I could be wrong but I worked out that after today Atlanta have 8 days left in their season.

Will play 5 games in those 8 days.

Probably explains it

Ironically he probably gets paid more if it's not a 10 day contract.

Hope he makes the most of his short opportunity which could lead to summer/training camp invites.

I don't really follow NBA...
So what's the deal with these kind of signings, and 10-day contracts??

Are they filling a legitimate (on-court) need?
Taking out insurance against multiple injuries and/or foul trouble?
Looking to stir things up and motivate their existing bench players?
Fulfilling some kind of promise or hand-shake deal, eg "come and play for us in the G-League and we'll make sure you get a few NBA games?
Genuinely evaluating the player for a future possible signing?
Filling some technical requirement to have "X" number of players on their active roster?
Tying up some kind of contractual basis, so that they have the option of trading his signature for a bag of beans?
Some combination of the above?

In the case of the Hawks, definately filling a need.

This possibly doesn't happen if he was signed to somewhere other than the Kings/Gaze shitshow in the NBL. Funny how things work out.

Surely time now for Amritpal Singh to get the call up.

Played 5 minutes in a winning team today with no Embid in the 76ers, total stat of nothing's, 0 from 3 shots and minus three. Not certain why didn’t get more time.
