Deng Adel released by the Hawks
Deng Adel was released by the Illawarra Hawks earlier this week, sources confirmed to ESPN. @chomicide first. Adel, a marquee player, averaged 5.9 ppg (31.4% FG, 20.3% 3pt) and 3.6 rpg over 23 games.— Olgun Uluc (@OlgunUluc) April 29, 2021
This was the best outcome for both parties. This NBL stint was only hurting Adel's career; sure, a marquee local getting cut is unprecedented but his value was just getting worse and worse. For the Hawks, Adel was consistently a net negative on both ends so they don’t lose much.
