The Atlanta Hawks released Chandler Parsons as the corresponding move to avoid being over the roster limit following a trade Wednesday.

Parsons (University of Florida) is owed $25 million on an expiring contract this season, and he has played sparingly and has been out since suffering a concussion and other injuries in an automobile accident last month.

Wizards: Bradley Beal is averaging 29.2 points and 4.5 rebounds for Washington, yet was an All-Star Game snub.

In Monday’s loss to Golden State, Beal led Washington with 43 points in his seventh straight game with at least 30 points, the third-longest such streak in team history. Beal went 15 for 30 from the field while passing the injured John Wall for third on Washington’s career scoring list. Beal also went 10 for 10 at the line in his fifth straight game with at least 10 converted foul shots, tying him with Gilbert Arenas for the longest run in team history.
