ATLANTA (AP) _ Free agents Ivano Newbill, Ira Newble and Scoonie Penn were waived by the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday, leaving their roster one shy of the opening-night limit.
Newbill, a center, didn’t play in any of the club’s seven exhibition games. Newble, a forward, and Penn, a guard, each saw limited time. Both averaged one point a game.
The Hawks, their roster at 13 players, end their preseason Thursday night at Orlando.
Atlanta opens its regular season at Houston on Tuesday. The home opener is two nights later against the Washington Wizards and Michael Jordan.
