ATLANTA (AP) The Atlanta Hawks have requested waivers on Lamar Patterson.
Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer announced Sunday that the team and Patterson had agreed to his release ''to allow Patterson to address a personal matter.''
The Hawks signed Patterson to a multiyear contract Friday. The 6-foot-5 guard/forward previously had signed two 10-day contracts with the team, most recently Feb. 8.
Patterson, 25, averaged 1.8 points, 1.4 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 8 minutes in five games for the Hawks this season.
