Atlanta Hawks waive Jeremy Tyler

Oh Jeremy, we hardly knew ye.

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

From the official Hawks press release this morning:

The Atlanta Hawks have waived forward/center Jeremy Tyler, Hawks President of Basketball Operations/General Manager Danny Ferry announced today.

Acquired from the Golden State Warriors on February 21, Tyler appeared in one game for the Hawks (March 4 at Denver), grabbing three rebounds in five minutes of action.

What will the Hawks do with the extra roster spot. Keeping it vacant and signing a backup PG seem to be the leaders in the clubhouse, though we don't rule out Danny Ferry activating himself, like the great Roger Dorn did so many years ago.

UPDATE: Chris Vivlamore of the AJC is reporting that the Hawks will indeed use the roster spot for a PG and it will be Shelvin Mack.
