Hawks Waive Chris Silva

Just days after signing him, the Hawks have waived big man Chris Silva, the team announced today in a press release.

Silva, 27, has appeared in 70 NBA games over four seasons with the Heat, Kings, Timberwolves and Mavericks, and holds career averages of 2.8 PPG and 2.7 RPG in 7.6 MPG.

A 6’8″ power forward/center, Silva went undrafted out of South Carolina in 2019. He has spent most of his professional career with Miami, appearing in 64 games with the club.

It appears Silva will end up rejoining the College Park Skyhawks, Atlanta’s G League affiliate, to open the 2023/24 season after spending much of ’22/23 with the club. Hoops Rumors has confirmed that Silva’s contract with the Hawks was an Exhibit 10 deal that will entitle him to a bonus worth $75K if he spends at least 60 days with College Park.

With training camp around the corner, Atlanta now has 18 players under contract, leaving three open spots on the team’s 21-man offseason roster.
