Pittman was waived by the Hawks on Tuesday, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Pittman, who spent time overseas last season, is likely destined for the same fate in 2014-15. He could also head to the D-League in hopes of earning an NBA call-up.

Pittman signed a camp deal with the Hawks, Chirs Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

A second-round pick of the Heat in 2010, Pittman has struggled to carve out a niche in the NBA. The former Texas standout has appeared in just 50 games over four seasons, last playing two games for the Hawks in 2013-14 before signing with Houston, where he was subsequently waived. Pittman has struggled with weight issues in the past and is unlikely to make the final roster.

Dexter PIttman signed with Caciques de Humacao over the weekend.

The Rockets signed him quickly after waiving Greg Smith, but Pittman didn't even play. He's still overweight and will have a tough time getting back in the NBA.

These minor roster tweaks may have implications for the Rockets postseason, but they're irrelevant for fantasy purposes.

Rockets sign C Dexter Pittman.

The team will waive an unhealthy Greg Smith and to get some more depth. The Rockets have been playing Donatas Motiejunas out of position at center in the past week, so it's currently a thin area with Dwight Howard (ankle) still out. Obviously, Pittman should not be picked up in fantasy leagues.

Hawks release F/C Dexter Pittman.

Pittman was brought in as a warm body for the injury-depleted Hawks' frontcourt, but the 25-year-old only played three total minutes in two games with Atlanta. Pittman's release should pave the way for the Hawks to sign Mike Muscala.

Hawks sign F/C Dexter Pittman.

The Hawks are toast in the frontcourt tonight with Paul Millsap, Pero Antic and Gustavo Ayon, so the team waived Jared Cunningham to get another big man for tonight. If Pittman does get on the court, it should be interesting to see what kind of shape he's in. It's only a 10-day deal.

The Bulls waive F/C Dexter Pittman and F D.J. White.

Pittman is more known for being such a big guy than anything and he listed at 285 pounds, which is probably on the low side. He'll have a tough time making most NBA teams for lack of conditioning.

Dexter Pittman will join the Bulls for training camp.

Pittman turned down an offer to play in Italy, preferring to fight for an end-of-bench role with Chicago. He played just 10 games last season before being waived by the Grizzlies and he's a longshot to make the Bulls' roster.

Grizzlies waive F/C Dexter Pittman.

Memphis traded their second-round pick to get Pittman, so we can probably chalk this up as the most meaningless trade of the year. He played in seven games with Memphis, averaging 2.9 minutes per contest.
