HAWTHORN has delisted Lachie Bramble, Fergus Greene and Ned Long less than 24 hours after bringing four fresh players in during the Continental Tyres AFL Trade Period.
The Hawks completed deals for forwards Jack Gunston, Jack Ginnivan and Mabior Chol on Deadline Day and also added former Essendon rookie Massimo D'Ambrosio in the last minutes of Wednesday's trade window.
Greene, a former Western Bulldog, kicked 15 goals from 11 games after joining the Hawks as a delisted free agent at the end of 2022.
Bramble managed 30 games in three seasons after being recruited during the pre-season supplemental selection period ahead of 2021, while Long played five games in two seasons after being drafted in the 2021 rookie draft.
Hawthorn list manager Mark McKenzie thanked the trio for their efforts.

“These decisions are never easy to make and we thank each of these boys for their dedication to our football club,” McKenzie said.
“Lachy, Fergus and Ned are all popular members of our club, and on behalf of everyone at Hawthorn, I’d like to wish them all the best in their next chapters."
The Hawks have already delisted Emerson Jeka, Josh Morris and Fionn O'Hara, while ruckman Max Lynch retired on medical advice after suffering from multiple concussions.
