ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Hawks have signed guard Antonius Cleveland to a multiyear contract.
Cleveland was signed to two consecutive 10-day contracts before earning the new deal for the Hawks.
Atlanta will need the backcourt depth after losing guard Kent Bazemore for the remainder of the season with a bone bruise in his right knee. Bazemore suffered the injury on Sunday (Monday, PHL time) against Chicago.
Cleveland (6'6", 195) played in 13 games with Dallas while on a two-way contract before he was waived on Dec. 19. He signed his first 10-day contract with Atlanta on Feb. 22 (Feb. 23, PHL time).
