Hawks Claim Jared Rhoden

The Hawks have claimed guard Jared Rhoden, according to the NBA transactions log. Rhoden was waived earlier this week by the Trail Blazers.

It’s unlikely Rhoden will wind up on Atlanta’s 15-man opening night roster. By claiming him, the Hawks can make him an affiliate player with the College Park Skyhawks, since he was on an Exhibit 10 deal. Portland doesn’t have a G League affiliate.

He can become an affiliate player with Atlanta’s franchise if he’s waived and then joins the Skyhawks.

Rhoden, who went undrafted out of Seton Hall in June, played for Sacramento’s Summer League teams in July before signing a training camp contract with Portland.
