The Atlanta Hawks intend to sign guard Jordan Sibert to a 10-day contract, according to Chris Kirschner of The Athletic.
Sibert is 6-foot-4 and has been playing for the Erie BayHawks. He is a native of Cincinnati and played his college ball at Ohio State (2010-12) and Dayton (213-15). He has also spent time playing professionally overseas.
Sibert is aveeraging 15.1 points and 4.5 rebounds with the BayHawks, the Hawks’ affiliate in the G-League.
“Atlanta currently has just 12 players on standard NBA contracts, meaning two roster moves are necessary to get back to the league-mandated 14-player minimum,” Luke Adams of Hoops Rumors explained.
“Signing Sibert will get the Hawks halfway there, and they also reportedly intend to promote two-way player Jaylen Adams to the 15-man roster. Both moves should be finalized within the next day or two.”
