MILWAUKEE — Wesley Matthews, a former Milwaukee Bucks guard and Marquette University graduate has signed a one-year deal with the Atlanta Hawks, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Matthews was drafted in 2009, after spending four years with the Marquette men's basketball team. In the following years, he played for Utah, Dallas, Milwaukee, Los Angeles, Indiana, and New York.

Throughout his career, he has played in 950 games, starting in 753 of them. He scored an average of 11.7 points per game, and had a free throw percentage of 82%.
