The Hawks have signed free agent shooting guard Jordan Sibert to a contract, the team announced today in a press release. He’ll fill the roster spot that opened up this morning when Atlanta released Ray Spalding.
Sibert, 27, has spent most of his professional career playing in the G League or international leagues since going undrafted out of Dayton in 2015. He made his NBA debut earlier this year after he signed a 10-day contract with Atlanta in February, but the Hawks opted not to hang onto him beyond those 10 days.
Sibert spent most of the 2018/19 season playing for the Erie BayHawks, Atlanta’s G League affiliate, averaging 16.1 PPG and 4.4 RPG with a .428/.382/.844 shooting line in 42 games (32.0 MPG). He launched nearly nine three-point attempts per game for Erie.
Based on today’s news, it appears likely that Sibert will return to the Hawks’ G League team – now the College Park Skyhawks – in 2019/20. Assuming he signed an Exhibit 10 contract, he’d be eligible for a bonus worth up to $50K if he spends at least 60 days with the Skyhawks.
