The Atlanta Hawks announced on Sunday that they had requested waivers on guard Lamar Patterson. Per the announcement, the team and Patterson came to an agreement on his release so that he could attend to a personal matter.

The Hawks signed Patterson and forward Ryan Kelly to contracts for the remainder of the season following last Thursday’s trade deadline. Patterson had previously inked a pair of 10-day contracts with the Hawks.

Patterson appeared in five games with the Hawks this season averaging 1.8 points and 1.2 assists.

The Hawks originally acquired Patterson in a draft night trade at the 2014 Draft. He spent his first professional season playing in Turkey and appeared in 35 games with the Hawks during the 2016 season. The Hawks waived him in July where he was claimed by the Sacramento Kings. The Kings waived him again in October and he signed on with the Reno Bighorns of the NBA D-League before returning to Atlanta.
