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.
