Hawks sign Cleveland to second 10-day deal

The Hawks waived Antonious Cleveland on Saturday.

The Atlanta Hawks have apparently liked what they’ve seen out of Antonius Cleveland as they have signed him to a second 10-day contract, with an eye toward more of a commitment, according to Michael Cunningham of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Atlanta plans to sign he 24-year-old shooting guard through the rest of this season and 2018-19 as well, Cunningham adds.

Cleveland, a former two-way player with the Dallas Mavericks, didn’t see any game action during the first 10-day deal with the Atlanta. The former Southeast Missouri State standout  went undrafted in the 2017 draft, then signed a training-camp deal with the Golden State Warriors before getting the offer from Dallas.

The deal with Cleveland brings Atlanta’s roster back to 14 players.
