Atlanta Hawks Sign Two Players

The Atlanta Hawks have signed Cameron Oliver and Chris Clemons to 10-day contracts. 

The Hawks have been getting hit extremely hard by COVID-19, as they currently have over 10 players in health and safety protocols. Therefore, it was a no-brainer for the Hawks to add some more temporary depth to the roster.

After being cut by the Lakers at training camp, Oliver has been playing for the South Bay Lakers. On the season so far with the G-League squad, he has averaged 14.4 points and 7.2 rebounds per game. He also suited up for four games with the Houston Rockets last season. He did quite well in a minor role, as he averaged 10.8 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game.

Clemons was also cut during training, but by the Boston Celtics. In 14 games with the Maine Celtics this season, he has averaged 16.3 PPG, 4.9 rebounds, and 4.0 assists. He also played 33 games with the Rockets during the 2019-20 campaign. With them, he averaged 4.9 points, 0.9 rebounds and 0.8 assists.

Nevertheless, this is a good opportunity for these two to impress and try to land themselves NBA contracts for the rest of the season.
