Chris Vivlamore: Can confirm Marc Stein report that Kent Bazemore has agreed to a contract with the Hawks. Now, off to Vegas. #ATLHawks Twitter @ajchawks

Free-agent swingman Kent Bazemore has agreed to terms on a new deal with the Atlanta Hawks, according to sources close to the process. Sources said the in-demand Bazemore -- pursued by the reigning champion San Antonio Spurs and several other teams -- will sign a two-year deal worth a guaranteed $4 million from the Hawks. After playing sparingly in his first season and a half in the league, Bazemore emerged as a sleeper free agent following a solid finish to the 2013-14 campaign with the Los Angeles Lakers. ESPN.com

Bazemore's representatives were also in contract discussions with the Lakers on Friday, but there was more urgency on Atlanta's end, a league source told ESPNLosAngeles.com's Dave McMenamin. "Just a timing thing," the source said. "(The Lakers) couldn't agree tonight ... Hawks needed it done." ESPN.com
