On Sunday, Wilkins assumed his familiar role as D-League elder statesman and was unwilling to cede the stage. He cluttered the box score by launching 15 shots in 21 minutes and scored 13 points in the Futures’ 129-94 victory over the Prospects. “When they approached me about this, there was no doubt I was coming,” Wilkins said. “It’s a testament to what I’ve been doing in the D-League this season. I wanted to come here to represent myself, my family, my team — and try to put on a good show.”

Add Damien Wilkins to the list of former Hawks who will be in training camp. Wilkins, who played 52 games for the team during the 2010-11 season, will be a non-roster invite when camp begins Oct. 1. Wilkins joins former Hawks player Royal Ivey, who agreed to an invitation Wednesday, in camp. Like Ivey, Wilkins played last season with the 76ers. The 6-foot-6 guard/small forward averaged 6.3 points, 1.7 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 18.0 minutes in 61 games, including 21 starts. The invitations to Wilkins and Ivey could be out of concern that Lou Williams may not be ready by the start of the season as he rehabs from a torn ACL.

Damien Wilkins hopes it doesn’t come down to it, but he’s ready to go overseas if the lockout continues. The free agent swingman told HoopsHype he has already received interest from the Chinese League. “My agent brought an offer from China, but obviously you know they want you to stay,” Wilkins said. “I don’t know if that offer still stands or is still on the table because we haven’t spoken about it anymore, but it’s something I’ll take a closer look at now.”
