Hawks considering signing Shelvin Mack for remainder of the season

USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Hawks are having internal discussions about signing point guard Shelvin Mack for the remainder of the season.

Before Sunday's win over the Milwaukee Bucks, the AJC reported that the Hawks were in discussions to sign reserve point guard Shelvin Mack for the remainder of the season. Devin Harris' injury on Sunday may help those negotiations along.

Mack's second 10-day contract will expire on Tuesday and by rule the Hawks will have to either sign him for the remainder of the season or let him walk. Mack was pressed into duty on Sunday after Harris went to the bench in the fourth quarter with an apparent foot injury.

Jeff Teague played the entire third quarter while Harris began the fourth at the point. When Harris left, Drew turned to Mack to fill some valuable minutes while Teague was still on the bench. He didn't disappoint scoring two points while handing out two assists with no turnovers in just over four minutes.

Given Harris' injury history it was highly unlikely that the Hawks would go the remainder of the season without a third point guard on the roster. That was the situation when the Hawks waived Jeremy Tyler to sign Mack in the first place and nothing has changed now.

Mack has appeared in seven games with Atlanta this season and is averaging 1.6 points per game.
