The Atlanta Hawks will be participating in the Las Vegas Summer League that begins on July 11.
Summer League usually is filled with rookies, second-year players, and guys who are trying to make an NBA roster.
With that being said, here’s the complete 2014 Atlanta Hawks Summer League roster:
|#||Player||Pos||Ht||Wt||Birthdate||Prior to NBA/Home Country||Yrs|
|7||Michael Bramos||G/F||6-6||225||05/27/87||Miami (Ohio)/USA||R|
|25||Eric Dawson||F||6-9||255||07/07/84||Midwestern State/USA||1|
|11||Stephen Holt||G||6-4||195||12/06/91||Saint Mary’s/USA||R|
|44||Abraham Milsap||G||6-4||190||09/06/89||Tennessee State/USA||R|
|18||Edo Muric||F||6-8||190||11/27/91||Krka Novo Mesto/Slovenia||R|
|33||Adreian Payne||F/C||6-10||245||02/19/91||Michigan State/USA||R|
|17||Dennis Schroder||G||6-1||175||09/15/93||NY Phantoms/Germany||1|
|20||D.J. Shelton||C||6-10||250||04/04/91||Washington State/USA||R|
|22||Walter “Edy” Tavares||C||7-3||260||03/22/92||Gran Canaria/Cape Verde||R|
The Hawks also announced that assistant coach Darvin Ham will be coaching the squad, which might also indicate that he has taken over the top assistant spot from Quin Snyder — who is now the head coach of the Jazz.
There are some interesting notes about the roster:
- 2014 first-round pick Adreian Payne is listed as both a forward and a center, which may mean the team is looking for him to try his luck playing the five.
- Dennis Schröder, Mike Muscala, and John Jenkins will make their return to Las Vegas, as they were on last year’s squad.
- Abraham Millsap is Paul Millsap’s brother, so it’s nice to see a little family connection on the team.
- Walter “Edy” Tavares will be with the Hawks during Summer League after there was some doubt as to whether he would be playing or not.
