Hawks sign No. 1 pick Zaccharie Risacher

The Atlanta Hawks signed the No. 1 pick of this year’s NBA Draft, Zaccharie Risacher, the team announced Saturday.

Per team policy, no further details of the deal were disclosed. Spotrac predicted Risacher’s deal to be for four years at $57.2 million.

Risacher — who was born in Spain but grew up in France — most recently played for JL Bourg-en-Bresse of LNB Elite, France’s premier division of professional basketball.

In 32 games last season, Risacher averaged 10.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 0.9 assists for JL Bourg. The 19-year-old is 6-foot-9 and weighed in at 195 pounds at the draft combine in May.

“So exciting. There’s a lot of feelings and emotions right now,” Risacher told ESPN after becoming the Hawks’ first No. 1 draft pick since 1975. “I don’t know what to say, but … I’m so blessed.”
