The Hawks released Dexter Pittman, clearing a roster spot for Mike Muscala, who was signed Thursday. Pittman signed a 10-day contract with the Hawks Saturday and appeared in two games. Muscala had played the 2013-14 season with Blusens Monbus Obradoiro of the ACB League in Spain. The 6-foot-11, 230-pound center averaged 14.6 points (seventh in the ACB) on .546 shooting, a league-leading 7.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 26.3 minutes per game through 20 games. He shot .871 from the free throw line. “We are really excited that Mike was available to join our team. We’ve closely monitored Mike and his progress throughout the ACB season. Coach Fernandez and his Obradoiro CAB club did an excellent job with his continued development,” Hawks general manager Danny Ferry said.
