Hawks request waivers on 2021 second-round draft pick Cooper


ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Hawks have requested waivers on guard Sharife Cooper, a 2021 second-round draft pick from Auburn. The move came after Cooper averaged 4.4 points in five games on Atlanta’s Summer League team. Cooper’s possible path to a roster spot in Atlanta became more difficult this offseason. The Hawks have fortified their point guard depth behind Trae Young with trades for Dejounte Murray and Aaron Holiday. After signing a two-way contract, Cooper averaged only three minutes in 13 games with Atlanta as a rookie last season. He averaged 17.4 points and 6.4 assists in 34 G League games with the College Park Skyhawks.
