The Atlanta Hawks have requested waivers on forward Antawn Jamison, whom they acquired in a low-key trade Thursday.

The Hawks sent the rights to shooting guard Cenk Akyol, a 2005 second-round pick now playing in Turkey, to the Los Angeles Clippers for Jamison.

Hawks general manager Danny Ferry said he'd talk with Jamison to determine his interest in playing with Atlanta — then on Friday, he announced that the team had requested waivers on Jamison.

The 37-year-old Jamison has appeared in 22 games this season, averaging 3.8 points and 2.5 rebounds in 11.3 minutes.

Atlanta also recalled Jared Cunningham from Bakersfield of the NBA Development League.
