The Hawks won’t keep James Nunnally, whose second 10-day contract expired yesterday, per a tweet from Shams Charania of RealGM. Teams are only able to sign a player to two 10-day contracts, after that the player can only be retained through a contract that lasts at least the rest of the season.
In four games with the Hawks (his only time in the NBA), Nunnally was averaging 4.5 points on .333 shooting, and 2 rebounds per game in 13.5 minutes. Before the Hawks gave him this look, the Cavs, Bulls, and Thunder all showed some interest in the 23-year-old. Nunnally spent time in the Suns’ training camp before being waived, and has played in the D-Leauge this year as a member of the Bakersfield Jam, averaging 11.3 points a contest there.
