Erick Dampier's 10-day contract with the Atlanta Hawks expired following Saturday's loss in Portland. Dampier was added to the roster to provide some depth for the front court after losing both Al Horford and Jason Collins to injury earlier this season.

Atlanta can re-sign Dampier for one more 10-day contract or could offer him a deal for the remainder of the season. They also could decide to look elsewhere as they have been rumored to be interested in Kyrylo Fesenko in recent days.

Dampier appeared in four games and played 26 minutes during his stint with the Hawks. For what it's worth, Dampier expressed his desire to stay with the Hawks before Saturday's game.

"It's been great so far," he said before the Blazers game. "It's a great group of guys. I think they are trying to mix in some experienced guys in with this team."
