Hawks To Waive Khyri Thomas

After acquiring him from Detroit, the Hawks intend to waive shooting guard Khyri Thomas, according to Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (Twitter link).

Atlanta will presumably finalize that move before Thomas’ $1.66MM salary for 2020/21 becomes guaranteed on Sunday. For now, the Hawks would only be on the hook for his partial guarantee of $745K.

The 38th overall pick in the 2018 draft, Thomas has only appeared in 34 games over two years for the Pistons, averaging 2.3 PPG in 7.5 minutes per contest. The 24-year-old will become an unrestricted free agent if he clears waivers.

      Dedmon for Snell and Thomas. Helps the Hawks next year as they no longer have Dedmon’s ~$13M salary for 2021-22. Snell will most likely be a non-factor but is an expiring contract.

  1. Count that baby and a foul!

    The original trade article laid it out. It is a trade based on the depth of position for both teams.

  2. Tomorrow at 12 noon the it’s hawks day they will be in the running for EVERY free agent
