Fesenko To Work Out For Hawks
After being waived by the Chicago Bulls, Kyrylo Fesenko will work out for the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday, a person close to the 7-foot-1 center told RealGM.
In an effort to stay in top shape for another opportunity, Fesenko had been training in Colorado since being cut on Oct. 18.
Fesenko told RealGM earlier this month that he passed up offers from other NBA teams in favor of the Bulls’ training camp invite. The 25-year-old was confident that he’d stick around with the Bulls because of his defensive mindset and familiarity, but the organization wasn’t in position to sign him to a guaranteed contract.
If Fesenko manages to land with the Hawks, he will reunite with former Utah Jazz teammate Kyle Korver – whom Fesenko had been excited to play alongside as a Bull before learning about Korver’s trade to Atlanta.
Fesenko has averaged 2.3 points and two rebounds over his five-year career with the Utah Jazz and Indiana Pacers, providing glimpses of strong defense to ensure his value.
