The Atlanta Hawks announced today that they were waiving PF Jeremy Tyler, who was acquired at the trade deadline from the Golden State Warriors. Hawks president Danny Ferry announced the transaction via a press release sent out this morning.
Tyler appeared in one game for Atlanta, playing five minutes and notching three rebounds without attempting a shot in Monday's road loss to Denver.
Prior to coming to Atlanta, Tyler had appeared in 20 games with the Warriors, averaging one point and one rebound per game in 3.2 minutes of action per appearance. The second-year forward is now free to sign with any team for the remainder of the season.
Tyler was acquired from Golden State on February for a second-round draft pick. The Warriors made the deal specifically to get under the luxury tax threshold for this season. The Hawks, meanwhile, struggled to find a place for Tyler to play and contribute despite numerous injuries on the club.
The Hawks will host Philadelphia tonight at Philips Arena.
