July 25, 2014 

Former Bryan Station standout Shelvin Mack agreed to a three-year, $7.3 million deal to stay with the Atlanta Hawks, Yahoo Sports reported Friday.

Mack, who was a restricted free agent, started 11 of 72 games last season and averaged a career-best 7.5 points and 3.7 assists per game.

Mack, who starred in college at Butler, was drafted by the Washington Wizards with the No. 34 pick in the 2011 draft. He played alongside John Wall during his first year in the league, and has also played for the Philadelphia 76ers.

Ex-Cat Miller's deal official

The New Orleans Pelicans made their re-signing of former Mason County and Kentucky standout Darius Miller official on Friday. Terms of the deal were not released.

Miller, originally drafted by New Orleans with the 46th overall pick of the NBA Draft in 2012, averaged 4.4 points and 1.2 rebounds in 16.1 minutes per game last season.

Miller has appeared in 97 career games (nine starts) for the Pelicans over the last two seasons, averaging 3.3 points and 1.3 rebounds in 14.6 minutes per game.

Lakers re-sign Henry

Xavier Henry agreed Friday to a one-year deal to return to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Henry averaged career highs with 10.0 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.2 assists in the swingman's first season with the Lakers despite numerous injuries that limited him to 43 games.

The four-year NBA veteran underwent surgery on his left wrist and right knee after his season ended, and his recovery from the injuries likely affected his ability to land a bigger free-agent contract.

Henry was the 12th overall pick in the 2010 draft by Memphis. He also played two seasons with New Orleans before joining Los Angeles as a training-camp invitee last year.

Magic sign Ridnour

The Orlando Magic filled out their rotation in the backcourt with the signing of free agent guard Luke Ridnour.

General Manager Rob Hennigan announced the addition on Friday. Details were not disclosed. Ridnour is expected to serve as Orlando's third point guard behind Victor Oladipo and rookie Elfrid Payton.

The 33-year-old Ridnour appeared in 61 games last season with Milwaukee and Charlotte. He started the season with the Bucks before being traded to the Hornets in late February.

The 14th overall pick in 2003 the draft, Orlando becomes Ridnour's fifth NBA team. He has career averages of 9.6 points, 4.6 assists and 2.3 rebounds per game.

Hawks sign rookie Payne

The Atlanta Hawks signed power forward Adreian Payne, the team's first-round pick last month. The 6-foot-10 Payne, from Michigan State, was the 15th overall pick.

Payne averaged 12.5 points and seven rebounds while starting all six games for the Hawks' Las Vegas summer league team this month.

He finished his college career as Michigan State's career leader with 141 blocked shots. He averaged 16.4 points and 7.3 rebounds as a senior.

Terms of the deal were not released.
