RealGM's Shams Charania reports that the Atlanta Hawks and John Salmons have agreed to extend his waiver deadline to July 10.
Atlanta Hawks won't release John Salmons today, and both sides have agreed to extend waiver deadline to July 10, league source tells RealGM.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) July 1, 2014
Salmons was acquired in a trade on Sunday in exchange for Lou Williams and Lucas Nogueira. Salmons is on the books for $7 million this season but only $1 million is guaranteed. The move is currently pending league approval but the Hawks are still expected to waive Salmons before the new deadline.
Nevertheless, the Hawks still aren't expected to keep John Salmons past the new deadline, league source tells RealGM.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) July 1, 2014
Not exactly sure why for the delay. The Hawks still haven't officially announced the trade of Williams and Nogueira for Salmons. We will update when more information becomes available.
