Atlanta Hawks cut player a day after signing

Published Add your comment

The Atlanta Hawks requested waivers on forward Antawn Jamison today, just a day after trading for the forward on trade deadline day.

The Hawks acquired Jamison from the Los Angeles Clippers Thursday in exchange for the draft rights to Turkish forward Cenk Akyol, but have decided not to add Jamison to the roster.

Instead, Atlanta have re-signed forward Cartier Martin for the remainder of the season.

Martin was waived Thursday, when his second 10-day contract with the Hawks expired, to make room for Jamison's addition.

Jamison had played only a minor amount of minutes with the Clippers this season, his 16th in the NBA.

In 22 games with the Los Angeles side, the 37-year-old averaged 3.8 points, 2.5 rebounds and 11.3 minutes.

Martin averaged 6.7 points and 2.0 rebounds, while shooting 42.4 percent from 3-point range, in 31 games over two separate stints with the Hawks this season.

The guard/forward was first waived by the Hawks in January and enjoyed a brief stint with the Chicago Bulls before being re-signed by Atlanta on February 1st.
