The Hawks signed former Southeast Missouri State guard Antonius Cleveland to a 10-day contract, the team announced Thursday.

Cleveland, a graduate of Faith Baptist Christian Academy in Ludowici, Ga., went undrafted in 2017 and signed a two-way contract with the Dallas Mavericks out of college where he played in 13 games with the Mavericks and seven with the team’s G League team.

Cleveland was at the Hawks practice facility on Thursday. He said he had left ankle surgery in December and is still not cleared to practice.

In six games with the Austin Spurs and one with the Texas Legends, Cleveland averaged 13.6 points and shot 54.7 percent from the field and 50 percent from 3-point range.

Cleveland, who will wear No. 0, played four seasons at Southeast Missouri State and during his senior season started 33 games and averaged 16.6 points, 2.2 assists and 1.4 steals in 32.9 minutes.
