The Atlanta Hawks have released their full roster for the Samsung Summer League that will be held in Las Vegas beginning on July 11. Here is a look at the full 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|
Perhaps the biggest surprise on the roster is the inclusion of second round pick Walter Tavares. His status had been somewhat up in the air following the draft and the Hawks likely had to get clearance from FIBA before officially adding him to the roster. They had to take an identical route last summer with Lucas Nogueira who gained clearance shortly before tip off of the team's summer league opener.
We will take a more in depth look at the roster later but the first thing that jumps out at you is the amount of players that were drafted by the Hawks. John Jenkins, Mike Muscala and Dennis Schroder will be joined by the entire 2014 draft class which includes Tavares, first-round pick Adreian Payne and Lamar Patterson.
The Hawks list Darvin Ham as the team's head coach. He will be assisted by Kenny Atkinson, Taylor Jenkins and Jordan Ott.
