Hawks request waivers on Jahlil Okafor, Young and Hunter return to practice



Article Summary:

The Atlanta Hawks have announced that they requested waivers on center Jahlil Okafor, who they signed ahead of training camp to potentially compete for one of their final roster spots.

Okafor did not play much after the Hawks’ first preseason game vs. the Miami Heat, only reemerging in the rotation after Gorgui Dieng suffered a hand injury in the first half of the Hawks’ third preseason game vs. the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Hawks have one more preseason game Thursday night at home vs. the Miami Heat, and will open the regular season Oct. 21 at home vs. the Dallas Mavericks.
