Hawks Announce Tyler Harvey as First Import

The Hawks have signed their first import for the 2020/21 Hungry Jack’s NBL Season, with renowned sharpshooter Tyler Harvey joining the club on a one- year deal.

The 27-year-old guard is known for his three-point shooting ability and scored 58 points in a game for the Memphis Hustle in the NBA G-League in February 2019.

Harvey most recently played in Germany for ratiopharm Ulm, where he was averaging 12.8 points in EuroCup games and 10.2 points in Bundesliga games. He has also played professionally in France, Italy and in America in the G-League.

The California native played three college seasons at Eastern Washington and averaged 23.1 points in the 2014/15 season, which led all NCAA Division One players. Harvey played with Australians Felix von Hofe, Venky Jois and Jordan Hickert in college.

Harvey was selected with the 51st pick in the 2015 NBA draft by the Orlando Magic.

Hawks Head Coach Brian Goorjian said: “We are delighted to welcome Tyler to The Hawks as the club’s first import signing for the new season.

“Tyler’s scoring and shooting attributes are well known across the world and we believe he can make an instant impact in those areas for us. He will play a key role for The Hawks this season as we construct a team that the fanbase can be proud of on and off the court.”

Harvey joins Emmett Naar, Deng Deng, Dan Grida, Deng Adel, Sam Froling and Isaac White on The Hawks’ roster for the upcoming season.

Harvey said: “My eyes have always been on the NBL. I’ve heard nothing but great things about it. Playing for a great coach (Brian Goorjian), a great organisation, so I felt like it was the right move for my wife and I, and for my basketball career to take this opportunity

“After talking with him (Goorjian) it seemed like the right fit for me to play for the winningest coach in Australian sports history, how often can you do that? They got Mr Colangelo there as well, he is well respected in the States and everywhere.

“I was brought this opportunity and it was hard to pass up. I feel like this year is really going to help me grow as a player and as a person.”
