Hawks Request Waivers On Rookie Guard Donald Sloan

The Atlanta Hawks made a roster move today requesting waivers on rookie point guard Donald Sloan. Sloan appeared in five games for the Hawks and averaged 1.2 points, 1.0 assists per game. By cutting Sloan, the Hawks salary figure dips slightly below the luxury tax threshold.

Sloan became expendable with the return of Kirk Hinrich to the active roster. The Hawks point guard rotation has Jeff Teague entrenched as the starter with Hinrich as the backup. Jannero Pargo figures to slide out of the rotation once Hinrich is completely 100 percent.

Before joining the Hawks in training camp, Sloan played five games for the Erie Bayhawks in the NBA Development league averaging 24.8 points and 8.4 assists per game. He played in 49 games with Reno during the 2010-11 season and finished with averages of 10.7 points and 4.4 assists.
