Looks like his agent thought Atlanta may be a better opportunity:

Once again we get more news from the Syracuse paper than from any DC-based media.

Has there even been a postseason line in the paper here about Tyler, despite his MVP and all star performances at showcase events?

TC will have a 10 year pro career... he's like Kevin Love but without all the hype out of high school. A legit stat stuffer.

Tyler Cavanaugh has had a change of basketball plans.

The former Jamesville-DeWitt and George Washington star initially was headed to Utah to play for the Jazz in the NBA Summer League.  Now, he's going to Atlanta to play for the Hawks.

"The bottom line is Utah was great to us, but something happened with Atlanta that made me go back to Utah to discuss it with them," said Keith Glass, Cavanaugh's agent.  "I've had conversations with Atlanta that they initiated.  Some things came up and it's all positive for Tyler."

The Jazz is engulfed these days in ways to keep star Gordon Hayward and all that portends for its franchise. Hayward, who will opt out of the final year of his contract, will meet with the Heat, the Celtics and the Jazz over the next few days. He might stay with the Jazz.  He might not.  Because of his situation, Utah is a team in flux.

The Hawks could be thin along their front line, especially if they lose star forward Paul Milsap, who is an unrestricted free agent.  Atlanta has indicated it would not offer Milsap a max deal (he's 32).  The Hawks also have several UFAs in Ersan Ilyasova, Kris Humphries, Thabo Sefolosha, Mike Muscala and Jose Calderon. 

Atlanta just drafted John Collins, the forward out of Wake Forest, where Cavanaugh played for two seasons before transferring to GW.  There would appear to be more opportunity for Cavanaugh with the Hawks.

TC had 4 points on 2-7 shooting and 5 rebounds in 9 minutes. -6 in +/-. At least he was more aggressive.

@Lets Go saw the game and totally agree. I wanted to see more of him but it is what it is. I hate to talk about kids but there was some garbage out there!!!
