Kyrylo Fesenko waived by Bulls, gets workout with Hawks
The Bulls brought in Kyrylo Fesenko looking to add a little depth at the five spot, but once they got a closer look at the roster they decided “we’re good here” and waived Fesenko.
Now Fesenko is getting a look from the Atlanta Hawks, reports Shams Charania of Real GM:
Word out of Colorado -- where he has been training since being cut by #Bulls -- is Kyrylo Fesenko will work out for the #Hawks on Tuesday.

Atlanta starts a very good front line of Al Horford and Josh Smith, with the only true center behind them being Zaza Pachulia. The Hawks may be interested in adding depth and they only have 14 guys on the roster so nobody needs to be cut to make room.
Not sure it happens in Atlanta, but you can bet that Fesenko will land somewhere this season. Fesenko played four years in the NBA and had a cup of coffee last season with the Pacers, he knows how to be an NBA player. A lot of GMs will have him on their list and when someone’s center (starting or backup) goes down Fesenko’s phone will ring.
