Mike Budenholzer indicated before Wednesday's game that Dennis Schröder's assignment in the D-League could be a short one.

Mike Budenholzer discussed the decision to send rookie Dennis Schröder to the D-League prior to Wednesday's game against the Clippers. Budenholzer indicated that Schröder's assignment could be a short one but that they would see how things went both for him in Bakersfield and the Hawks in Atlanta.

The Hawks utilized the D-League last season when John Jenkins and Mike Scott were both in their rookie seasons. Jenkins assignment lasted just two games while Scott was in Bakersfield for a total of seven. Both players used the experience as a positive and it led to more playing time down the stretch of the season. Jenkins tore the D-League up averaging over 25 points a game in his brief stay.

The assignment will be a good opportunity for Schröder to get some playing time and regain his confidence. He has struggled since returning from his one-game suspension. The Hawks currently have a good situation at point guard with both Jeff Teague and Shelvin Mack playing at high levels.
