The Atlanta Hawks waived veteran guard Jarrett Jack on Thursday.

Jack has been unable to practice after suffering torn knee ligaments last season. He missed all seven of the Hawks' exhibition games this preseason.

Jack agreed to a one-year, veteran-minimum contract worth $980,431 this summer after the Brooklyn Nets waived him and his $6.3 million contract in June, making him an unrestricted free agent.

Jack, 32, averaged 12.8 points and 7.4 assists last season in 32 games, all as a starter.

With Jack gone, the Hawks have Will Bynum and Josh Magette as point guards on the roster behind starter Dennis Schroder and backup Malcolm Delaney.
