With just about 20 games remaining in the 2016-17 regular season, the Atlanta Hawks are still making roster improvements.

The Atlanta Hawks Basketball Club have claimed guard Jose Calderon off of waivers, it was announced on Saturday night by President of Basketball Operations/Head Coach Mike Budenholzer.

“We feel fortunate to be able to add a player of Jose’s caliber at this point in the season,” Budenholzer said. “His unselfish nature and ability to shoot with range fits our style of play and his experience will add to our locker room.”

In his 12th season, Calderon has appeared in 772 career regular season games (557 starts), averaging 9.7 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.6 assists (.473 FG%, .411 3FG%, .875 FT%). He’s also played in 18 postseason contests.

As a member of the Spanish national team, he’s won the FIBA World Cup (2006), two Olympic silver medals (2008, 2012) and a bronze medal (2016). Jose Calderon will wear uniform No. 13 for the Hawks.
