Hawks Waive Corbin & Ferrell

The Atlanta Hawks, committed to making their roster younger, waived swingman Tyrone Corbin and forward Duane Ferrell on Monday.

Last year, Corbin, 36, helped out after injuries decimated the lineup. Normally a small forward, he filled in for injured guard Steve Smith, and played in 47 games, fourth-highest on the team. He averaged 7.5 points and 3.1 rebounds per game in the first year of a two-year contract.

Ferrell, 34, arrived earlier this summer with point guard Bimbo Coles in a trade that sent Mookie Blaylock to the Golden State Warriors.

A former star at Georgia Tech, Ferrell played in only eight games for the Warriors last season because of tendinitis in his left knee. He spent his first six NBA seasons with the Hawks, averaging a career-high 12.7 points in 1991-92, and also played for the Indiana Pacers.
