The Atlanta Hawks won't re-sign forward Jarell Eddie to another 10-day contract.

Rookie forward Jarell Eddie's NBA tenure ended Friday night without a minute of playing time. Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Eddie said his goodbye's to his teammates following Atlanta's 96-87 comeback win over the Phoenix Suns.

Atlanta's situation has changed since they signed Eddie to his first 10-day contract. Forward Thabo Sefolosha is nearing a return from a long absence due to a strained calf. A report surfaced on Friday that forward Mike Scott has a broken toe. The team has not confirmed Scott's injury but if the report is true, that could have them looking for a power forward to give a 10-day contract.

Vivlamore reports that Eddie is likely to return to the Austin Spurs of the NBA D-League. Eddie appeared in 37 games averaging 11.9 points per game while knocking down 42 percent of his three-point attempts.
