ATLANTA (AP) The Atlanta Hawks have re-signed forward Ivan Johnson, who made a surprise impact as an undrafted rookie last season.

The 28-year-old Johnson averaged 6.4 points and 4.0 rebounds in 56 games. He led the team by making 51.3 percent of his shots from the field and ranked fourth in rebounds.

The 6-foot-8, 255-pound Johnson was the NBA's rookie of the month for April.

General manager Danny Ferry announced Johnson's new deal on Tuesday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
