Jaylen Adams Waived By Hawks

The Hawks have waived guard Jaylen Adams, JD Shaw of Hoops Rumors tweets.

Adams’ $1,416,852 salary for next season would have been guaranteed on July 19 if he hadn’t been waived. The Hawks will only incur a cap hit of $100K.

Atlanta now has $7MM in cap space and 13 players on guaranteed contracts, Bobby Marks of ESPN notes. The Hawks are short on point guards behind Trae Young, so they may be targeting a veteran at that spot.

Adams signed a two-way deal with Atlanta last summer, then had it converted to a standard contract in February. He went undrafted out of St. Bonaventure.

The 23-year-old Adams appeared in 34 NBA games last season, averaging 3.2 PPG and 1.9 APG in 12.6 MPG.

    With 2 spots remaining, they may be looking to bring in a point guard and Vince Carter, as he said he was open to returning. Personally, I feel he should end his career with one of the two teams he began it – either the Raptors or the Nets – but I perfectly understand if that’s where he knows he can get a roster spot. As a records’ geek, I want to see him enter the record book as the only NBA player to play in four distinct named decades. I’m not buying the crap that he would need to play in 2021. I’m looking at the “2020’s,” not the “3rd decade of the 21st century.”

      I want VC on the Nets. I think he’d play about 15 minutes a game and contribute on and off the court. Fans still love him.
