    ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Hawks have signed guard Antonius Cleveland to a multiyear contract.

    Cleveland was signed to two consecutive 10-day contracts before earning the new deal for the Hawks.

    Atlanta will need the backcourt depth after losing guard Kent Bazemore for the remainder of the season with a bone bruise in his right knee. Bazemore suffered the injury on Sunday against Chicago.

    Cleveland (6-6, 195) played in 13 games with Dallas while on a two-way contract before he was waived on Dec. 19. He signed his first 10-day contract with Atlanta on Feb.22.
