Hawks reportedly release Walter Tavares, to sign Ryan Kelly with Mike Scott out four weeks
Kristaps Porzingis and Boban Marjanovic now stand alone as the tallest players in the NBA.
The other 7-foot-3 player is now out of the league.
The Hawks waived Walter Tavares to sign Ryan Kelly with Mike Scott injured.

This indicates Tiago Splitter is on track to return from his injury before Scott from his.
Kelly, a stretch four, attended training camp with the Hawks. He got cut, but there could be a role for him with Scott now hurt.
Tavares is an interior-oriented center who already somewhat duplicates Dwight Howard and would become even more superfluous when Splitter returns.
