The Hawks are set to waive Jaylen Adams ahead of his July 19 guarantee date.
Adams went undrafted in 2018 but after playing well in the G-League, his two-way contract was converted into a standard one. He ended up playing 34 games for the Hawks with 3.2 points, 1.9 assists and 1.8 rebounds in 12.6 minutes. With newly acquired Evan Turner likely to assume the backup point guard duties and Cam Reddish also expected play some point, the Hawks figured holding Adams wasn't necessary. The stat stuffing abilities he displayed in the G-League may bring some calls from other teams but he needs to improve his field goal percentage. He is not on the fantasy radar this season.
