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.

Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports:

Hawks release:

Atlanta Hawks forward Mike Scott will miss approximately four weeks while undergoing a series of non-surgical procedures for his left knee soreness.

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.
