The Atlanta Hawks announced early Wednesday that they have signed restricted free agent Bogdan Bogdanovic after the Sacramento Kings declined to match the Hawks' offer sheet.

Sacramento had 48 hours to match Atlanta's four-year deal worth $72 million for Bogdanovic. The deal reportedly included a player option and a 15 per cent trade kicker.

Bogdanovic averaged a career-best 15.1 points per game with Sacramento last season, his third year in the league. The 27-year-old added 3.4 assists and 3.4 rebounds a game last year, too.

The Serbian guard will wear jersey No. 13 with the Hawks.
