The Atlanta Hawks waived guard Jaylen Adams on Saturday, one week before his $1.45 million contracts for next season would have become guaranteed. Adams played in 34 games for Atlanta last season, averaging 3.2 points, 1.9 assists, and 1.8 rebounds in 12.6 minutes per game.
The 23-year-old also played with the G League's Erie BayHawks and averaged 15.3 points and 6.4 assists in 20 starts. Adams was a member of the Hawks' squad that went 2-3 in the Las Vegas Summer League this summer. He made just nine of 36 shots during the four games he appeared in.
Waiving Adams leaves the Hawks with 13 players on their roster. --Field Level Media
