Hawks To Waive Josh Magette

The Hawks will part ways with point guard Josh Magette, Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders reports (on Twitter). Atlanta won’t be on the hook for any salary as a result of the move, given that Magette’s contract was non-guaranteed. The Hawks’ roster will stand at 15 players after waiving Magette.

Magette made three preseason appearances for Atlanta, averaging 1.0 point, 1.0 rebound and 1.67 assists in 5.7 minutes per contest. He shot 50% from the field overall.

The 26-year-old spent the past two seasons with the L.A. Defenders in the D-League. He averaged 11.5 points and 9.1 assists in 45 games last season. Magette played college ball at Alabama-Huntsville and spent a year in both the Netherlands and Greece before coming to the D-League.

Hawks Waive Will Bynum

The Hawks have moved one step closer to finalizing their roster for the regular season, having parted ways with veteran guard Will Bynum, according to Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The move brings Atlanta’s roster count down to 16 players, one above the regular-season maximum.

Although he has appeared in 360 total regular season NBA games for three different teams since 2005, Bynum hasn’t played in a regular season contest since the 2014/15 season. For most of the last two seasons, Bynum has played for the Guangdong Southern Tigers in China. He averaged 17.8 PPG and 6.5 APG for the CBA club in 2015/16.

During the preseason, Bynum saw a decent amount of playing time in the Hawks’ first five preseason games, averaging 17 minutes per contest, but played just 10 total minutes in the club’s final two exhibitions. The 33-year-old’s contract was non-guaranteed, so Atlanta won’t carry a cap hit after releasing him.

With Bynum no longer in the mix, the Hawks have one more player – Josh Magette – who has a fully non-guaranteed salary. He looks like the odd man out for the team’s 15-man roster, with Mike Muscala and his partially guaranteed deal making the cut.

Hawks Waive Point Guard Jarrett Jack

The Hawks waived veteran point guard Jarrett Jack on Thursday, according to Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The move was injury related, as Jack has not practiced during training camp because of his continuing recovery from torn right knee ligaments, which he suffered in January while playing for the Nets. The move reduces the Hawks’ current roster to 17 players.

Atlanta was hoping Jack would provide insurance behind new starting point man Dennis Schroder. Jack signed a one-year, veteran minimum contract in July after being waived the Nets. The Hawks will have to eat Jack’s $980,431 deal, which was guaranteed.

Malcolm Delaney, who played the last five seasons in Europe, is Schroder’s current backup and the Hawks still have Will Bynum and Josh Magette on their roster. The Hawks might still cut the latter duo loose and enter the season with just two point guards, Vivlamore continues.

Jack had been looking forward to a “new start” in Atlanta after playing in just 32 games for the Nets last season. It’s been a steep fall for Jack, who came into last season as a starter. He was averaged 12.8 points and 7.4 assists prior to the injury.

Hawks Waive Ryan Kelly

The Hawks continue to slowly pare down their roster in advance of the regular season, waiving Ryan Kelly late on Tuesday night, according to Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Kelly is the second Atlanta player to be cut this week, along with Matt Costello, and his release reduces the team’s roster count to 18 players.

Kelly, 25, spent his first three seasons in the NBA as a member of the Lakers after being selected 48th overall in the 2013 draft. After averaging 22.9 minutes per contest during his first two seasons in Los Angeles, Kelly saw his playing time reduced last season, playing just 13.1 MPG in 36 contests. He averaged 4.2 PPG and 3.4 RPG in those games, shooting just 36.9% from the floor, 13.5% from beyond the arc, and 68.5% from the line.

With Kelly now on waivers, the Hawks have three more cuts to make to get down to the regular-season roster limit of 15 players. Josh Magette and Will Bynum, who are on non-guaranteed summer contracts, are most at risk. Mike Muscala also has a partially guaranteed deal, while Atlanta’s other 15 players have fully guaranteed 2016/17 salaries.

Jack Won't Be Ready To Start Season

  • Hawks coach/executive Mike Budenholzer confirmed that point guard Jarrett Jack, who is recovering from knee surgery, won’t be ready to take the court when the regular season begins, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution relays (via Twitter). No timetable was given for Jack’s return.

Hawks Waive Matt Costello

The Hawks have begun to make their preseason cuts, according to Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, who reports (via Twitter) that the team has waived Matt Costello. The move reduces Atlanta’s roster count to 19, so the club will still have to cut at least four more players before opening night.

Costello, who played his college ball at Michigan State, averaged 10.7 PPG and 8.2 RPG during his senior year in 2015/16. After going undrafted in June, Costello quickly agreed to terms with the Hawks and then made it official with the team in July. The power forward received a $50K guarantee on a two-year deal from Atlanta.

Costello played sparingly during the preseason with the Hawks, appearing in two games and totaling 18 minutes. He seems like a good bet to land with a D-League team, but Atlanta doesn’t have its own affiliate, so it would be a challenge for the Hawks to closely monitor him if he does end up in the D-League.

Jack Making Progress With Knee

New Hawks point guard Jarrett Jack hopes to begin non-contact work in practice next week, according to Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Atlanta is being careful with Jack, who is still recovering after tearing ligaments in his right knee in January. “I can tell you my knee feels 100 times better this month than it did last month,” Jack said. “Coach and [the staff] are on me about rushing to get back. They tell me to take my time. They’d rather have me for the longer stretch of the season than just this early part. I’m going to take it day by day. Patience isn’t something I was blessed with, so I’m going to do my best until the time is right to step back on the court.”

Hawks In No Rush To Cut Roster Down To 15

  • Malcolm Delaney, who signed a two-year, $5MM deal with the Hawks in the offseason, isn’t a typical rookie, writes Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Delaney, who is 27 years old and spent the last five seasons playing overseas, tells Vivlamore that he feels like he belongs in the NBA.
  • In a separate AJC piece, Vivlamore notes that no roster cuts appear imminent for the Hawks, who aren’t in any rush to reduce their roster to 15 players.

Hawks To Wait On Long-Term Deal For Schroder?

  • As high as they are on Dennis Schroder‘s potential, the Hawks may want to see how he handles the starting point guard job in Jeff Teague‘s absence before committing to a long-term deal, Stein writes. In that case, an extension this month seems unlikely.
