Sibert signed a 10-day contract with the Hawks last week after playing all season with their G League affiliate, the Erie Bayhawks, and did not get any playing time in his first three games.

Sibert played two seasons at Ohio State and scored 1,030 points in two seasons at Dayton. He ranks 44th in school history.

Sibert is the first member of Dayton's 2014 Elite Eight team and the second player from the Archie Miller era to play in the NBA. He's the first UD alum to debut since Charles Cooke in 2017.
