Former Seton Hall Jeremy Hazell will reportedly take part in Atlanta Hawks rookie mini-camp and then be a part of their entry in the Vegas Summer League. The team has yet to announce either rookie camp or its summer league entry but that isn't terribly surprising given we are still several weeks away from the draft. The report comes from a tweet sent out by Hazell's agent Seth Cohen.
"They've been high on Jeremy for a while and they want him to travel straight from mini-camp to the Vegas Summer League,"
Hazell was one of the players that took part in Atlanta's pre-lockout mini-camp last season. He was also one of those players that the lockout forced to seek opportunities overseas. He played briefly with Lucentum Alicante in Spain this past season but was in training camp with the Phoenix Suns.
Hazell is a 6-foot-5, 180 pound guard who averaged 19.8 points in 18 games his senior season at Seton Hall.
