The Atlanta Hawks have acquired forward Antawn Jamison from the Los Angeles Clippers per a report from ESPN.com's Brian Windhorst.

The move is a pure salary dump on the Clippers part according to Grantland's Zach Lowe

Jamison has played sparingly for the Clippers this season appearing in 22 games while averaging 3.8 points and 2.5 rebounds in 11.3 minutes of action. The details of the deal aren't known yet.

We will update as soon as more details become available. Hawks general manager Danny Ferry is scheduled to meet with the media at Philips Arena later this evening.

Update:

With the Hawks discussing a buyout it would appear that the motivation for this deal was picking up some cash and helping the Clippers clear some salary space. The trade still hasn't been formally announced by the team and we will pass along the details once they become available.

Update 5:50 p.m.

Hawks waiving Cartier Martin just hours before his second 10-day contract was expected in any deal made during the deadline.
