Hawks waive rookie G Sloan after Hinrich return

The Atlanta Hawks have requested waivers on little-used rookie guard Donald Sloan.

The team announced the move Thursday, one day after guard Kirk Hinrich made his season debut in a loss at San Antonio. Hinrich missed the first 18 games recovering from shoulder surgery.

The Hawks decided to keep 37-year-old Jerry Stackhouse instead of Sloan, who averaged 1.2 points while playing in just five games.
