Hawks waive Jahlil after lacklustre preseason



Article Summary:

Okafor did not play in the second game with the Hawks coaching staff preferring to try out Johnny Hamilton as the backup for Gorgui Dieng. While Hamilton looked bad on the defensive end, the Hawks still used him as the backup option for Dieng in the third game.

The Atlanta Hawks gave Jahlil Okafor one last chance in the third preseason game.

On top of this, the Hawks newly signed big man Dieng exiting the third preseason game with a sprain to his right hand which saw him exit the game prior to halftime, not to return.
