The Hawks have requested waivers on guard Tyrone Wallace, the team announced in a press release Saturday.
Wallace, 25, was originally claimed off waivers from the Timberwolves by Atlanta on Oct. 23. Since then, the former Clippers guard appeared in 14 games for the Hawks, averaging 2.9 PPG and 1.6 RPG in 11.5 minutes per contest. In parts of three seasons, the California product has appeared in 106 games, averaging 5.2 PPG.
By waiving Wallace, the Hawks opened up a roster spot. As noted by ESPN’s Bobby Marks (Twitter link), the Hawks have $4.8M in room and could direct some of that money toward filling the now-vacant roster spot.
