Silva signed two 10-day contracts with the Dallas Mavericks (Jan. 31, 2023 and Feb. 10, 2023), seeing action in one game.
Silva has played in 70 regular-season games over three seasons with the Heat, Kings and Timberwolves, posting career averages of averages of 2.8 points and 2.7 rebounds in 7.7 minutes. He also has logged G League minutes with Sioux Falls and Iowa.
The Hawks currently have no open roster spots, with 15 players currently signed to guaranteed deals, as well as three players signed to two-way contracts. The team is allowed to carry up to 21 players into training camp before whittling it down to the allotted number of players before they open the season Oct. 25 against the Hornets.
The Hawks could waive Silva and assign him to the Skyhawks of the NBA G League like they did last season following the team’s second exhibition game in Abu Dhabi.
