MARCH 14: Now that his second 10-day contract has expired, Cleveland has finalized his new multi-year deal with the Hawks, the team announced today in a press release.
MARCH 12: The Hawks are prepared to offer a multi-year deal to Antonius Cleveland that would include a guarantee for the remainder of the season, league sources told ESPN’s Chris Haynes (Twitter link).
Cleveland’s second 10-day deal is set to expire overnight on Tuesday. A plan was already in the works when Cleveland signed the second 10-day contract to extend the relationship for the rest of this season and beyond.
Cleveland, a 6’6” shooting guard, has yet to play for the Hawks. He saw action in 13 games as a two-way player with the Mavericks earlier this season, averaging 0.8 PPG in 6.2 MPG.
He went undrafted out of Southeast Missouri State last summer and inked a training camp deal with the Warriors before getting the two-way offer from Dallas.
