Erick Dampier Signs Second 10-Day Contract With Hawks UPDATED

WSB's Zach Klein is reporting that although not official, Erick Dampier is expected to sign another 10-day contract with the Atlanta Hawks.

Dampier's first 10-day contract ended after Saturday night's loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. By rule, the Hawks can sign Dampier to one more 10-day contract before either signing him for the remainder of the season or letting him go.

With Al Horford out and Jason Collins down for 2-4 more weeks, Atlanta's front court is thin which is why Dampier was signed in the first place. He has played 26 minutes for the Hawks over four games.

9:45pm Update: The signing is now official and has been confirmed via Hawks press release:

The Atlanta Hawks today signed center Erick Dampier to a second 10-day contract, according to Executive Vice President/General Manager Rick Sund.

The 15-year veteran has appeared in four games for the Hawks this season, after signing his first 10-day contract on February 9, averaging 2.5 rpg, 0.3 apg, 0.3 spg and 0.3 bpg in 6.5 mpg.
