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.
