Mathiang Signs with Hawks

The Illawarra Hawks have bolstered their front court with the signing of Mangok Mathiang for the 2022/23 season.

Mathiang joins the Hawks following stints in the NBA with the Charlotte Hornets, and in Europe, most recently with Cedevita Olimpija in the Slovenia ABA League.

During his time in Europe, the 29-year-old averaged a double-double while playing for Vanoli Cremona in the LBA, and Bahceseshir Koleji in the EuroCup.

Mathiang has played four games for the Casey Cavaliers in the NBL1 South season, averaging 18 points, 8.5 rebounds and 1.5 steals.

Hawks head coach, Jacob Jackomas, is excited about what Mathiang can bring to the court this season.

“Mathiang is known for his physical play, rim protection and high motor, making him a key addition to our squad,” Jackomas said.

“His versatility and athleticism really suits the style of play the NBL is headed towards, and he will bring a lot of experience to our young core group of players.”

Mathiang joins Tyler Harvey, Sam Froling, Daniel Grida, Alex Mudronja, Akoldah Gak, Wani Swaka Lo Buluk, Deng Deng and Lachlan Dent on Illawarra’s roster.

The Hawks’ campaign begins on October 1 against the Sydney Kings.
