Hawks Cut Thomas Robinson, R.J. Hunter, C.J. Anderson

The Hawks have trimmed their preseason roster by three, waiving Thomas Robinson, R.J. Hunter, and C.J. Anderson, according to Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (Twitter link). Atlanta’s roster is now at the regular season limit of 17 players, including two on two-way contracts.

Robinson, the fifth overall pick in the 2012 draft, has appeared in 313 career regular season games, but didn’t play in the NBA last season and was always a long shot to make the Hawks’ regular season roster, since the team is already carrying 15 players on guaranteed contracts. Hunter is also a former first-round pick who has struggled to find an NBA home.

Anderson, meanwhile, went undrafted out of the University of Massachusetts after averaging 10.6 PPG, 5.2 APG, and 5.0 RPG with a .414/.400/.813 shooting line as a senior in 2017/18. If he clears waivers, the Hawks would hold his G League rights as an affiliate player, so he may end up with the Erie BayHawks.

    Thomas Robinson. Another failed Sacramento Kings draft pick.

    Can’t shoot can’t score can’t defend cuz he’s too small for his position. Turnover-prone, just outmatched in every way.

    The one thing he does and why he keeps getting chances? Hustles his ass off 4 rebounds.

    Like I always say if you are exceptional in one area you have a chance to stick. You just have to be good everywhere else as well.

    Players that are “good” at everything don’t cut it.
