ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Hawks, looking for more front-line help as they attempt to remain in the Eastern Conference playoff race, have acquired 37-year-old forward Antawn Jamison from the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Clippers received the rights to shooting guard Cenk Akyol, a 2005 second-round pick now playing in Turkey, in Thursday's deal.

Hawks general manager Danny Ferry was Cleveland's GM when Jamison played for the Cavaliers in the 2009-10 season. Ferry says Jamison, a 15-year veteran, is an "ultimate professional and high-class guy." Ferry says he'll talk with Jamison to determine the forward's interest in playing with the Hawks.

The Hawks, hurt by injuries, have lost seven straight, falling from third to seventh in the Eastern Conference race.

Atlanta released forward Cartier Martin to clear a roster spot for Jamison.
