The Atlanta Hawks made their first roster cut of the preseason on Saturday when they announced that they had requested waivers on forward Richard Solomon.

Solomon is a 6-11 forward who played four-years in California and went undrafted at the end of the 2014 season. He played in the D-League in 2015 and spent last season in Japan where he averaged 11.2 points and 8.9 rebounds in 59 games for Toyota Alvark.

Solomon appeared in three games with the Phoenix Suns in the Orlando Summer League and then played four games for Oklahoma City in Las Vegas this summer.

Atlanta’s roster now stands at 19 players. The Hawks wrapped up a three-day training camp at the University of Georgia this past Thursday. The team will begin preseason play on October 6 when they travel to Memphis to face the Grizzlies. Their first home preseason game will be on Monday, October 10 against the NBA Champion Cleveland Cavaliers.
