The Atlanta Hawks have assigned shooting guard Jared Cunningham to the Bakersfield Jam of the NBA D-League.

In a story that seems to be recurring every couple of weeks, the Atlanta Hawks have assigned Jared Cunningham back to the D-League.

With Cartier Martin serving in his second stint with the team (on a 10-day contract), Danny Ferry and company apparently feel as though Cunningham's development is best continued in Bakersfield, and it's tough to argue with them. Since being recalled on January 25th, the 6-foot-4 guard has appeared in only 2 games for a total of 14 minutes, and he has posted a -1.76 PER in 5 appearances during the full season.
