Ryan Kelly is reportedly ineligible to sign a guaranteed deal with the Hawks this season because he wasn't waived by Houston prior to July 1.
"We anticipated [that] ... I was going to be able to [re-sign with the Hawks]," Kelly said. "I’ve got to go out and show what I can do to 28 other teams." The free agent forward was understandably frustrated, saying, "That’s the nature of the business. People tell you one thing and do other things." He could latch on somewhere as a perimeter specialist. Jul 10 - 1:52 AM

Jul 9 - 4:48 PM

Rockets waive F Ryan Kelly.

Ryan Kelly is signing a rest-of-season contract with the Hawks.

Kelly has spent time in the D-League this season and he's been a non-factor in the NBA. That's not going to change in the final weeks of the season.
Feb 23 - 7:57 PM

Hawks waive F Ryan Kelly.

Something could be cooking here, but Kelly has barely played this season. Kelly may not catch on with another team unless it's on a 10-day contract.
Jan 6 - 9:10 PM

Ryan Kelly (personal) was available to play vs. the Magic on Wednesday, but he picked up another DNP-CD.

Kelly has played a total of 47 minutes in nine appearances this season.

While the Hawks are at full strength, Kelly possesses precisely zero fantasy value.
Jan 1 - 4:53 PM

Ryan Kelly (personal) will not be with the team on Friday but will return for Sunday's game against the Spurs.

Kelly is with his family following the birth of his child. Kelly is not a part of the Hawks rotation and should be left on the waiver wire in all leagues.

Ryan Kelly (personal) is not with the Hawks for Wednesday.

Hopefully everything is OK with him, but the Hawks should be fine without him. Kelly is not in the rotation and would need several players to miss time to have any value.
Wed, Dec 28, 2016 05:52:00 PM

Ryan Kelly is expected to sign a deal with the Hawks.

He was waived by the Hawks in training camp and is currently in the D-League, but the Hawks are waiving Walter Tavares to make room for Kelly. He will just be an emergency body off the bench, so he's not a fantasy pickup.

Celtics waive F Ryan Kelly.

Kelly was just signed on Friday, but this was done so the Celtics could have his D-League rights. The expectation is for the stretch forward to head to Maine and play for the Red Claws.

The Hawks' roster is down to 18 after they let go of Matt Costello earlier in the week. Kelly will likely end up in the D-League or head overseas.
Tue, Oct 18, 2016 10:39:00 PM

Hawks sign F Ryan Kelly to a non-guaranteed contract.

Kelly appeared in 147 games over three seasons with the Lakers. He averaged 4.2 points and 3.4 rebounds per game in 13.1 minutes over 36 games last season. The Hawks have plenty of depth at power forward and center (Paul Millsap, Kris Humphries, Mike Scott, Mike Muscala, Dwight Howard, Tiago Splitter, Walter Tavares) so it is unlikely Kelly makes Atlanta's final 15-man roster. Even if he does, Kelly won't have fantasy value.
