3:19pm: Atlanta has made its signing of Martin official, the team announced.
9:07am: The Hawks will re-sign Cartier Martin for the balance of the season, tweets Shams Charania of RealGM. The Hawks were set to terminate Martin’s 10-day deal Thursday, but the team never officially announced that move before the end of the day, when the contract was set to expire anyway, making him a free agent.
Martin, 29, has seen time in 31 games this season for the Hawks, averaging 6.7 PPG and 2.0 RPG in 17.1 minutes per contest. The 29-year-old has spent most of the season with Atlanta after making the team out of camp. The Hawks cut him in January, before his contract would have become guaranteed for the season, which led to a pair of 10-day deals with Chicago, as our 10-Day Contract Tracker shows. The Andrew Vye client followed those up with two more 10-day contracts with the Hawks.
Yesterday, just hours after acquiring Antawn Jamison, we learned that Atlanta was mulling the possibility of buying out the veteran forward. That move will create the roster opening necessary to officially bring Martin back into the fold.
