Atlanta Hawks point guard Dennis Schroder will suit up for Germany at the 2017 Eurobasket tournament according to a report by BBL Profis. Schroder announced the decision Monday in his home town of Braunschweig.

“I will definitely play this summer. Listening to the German anthem is a great feeling. I did not hear it for a long time and it is time to listen to it again”

Schroder last played for Germany during the preliminary round of the 2015 Eurobasket. He was originally slated to participate with the team last summer but elected to remain stateside to focus on his transition to being the starting point guard of the Atlanta Hawks.

Schroder appeared in 79 games this season for Atlanta and set career highs in points (17.9), assists (6.3) and field goal percentage (45%).
