For the second straight year the Hawks waited until the day before game play to announce the team’s Las Vegas Summer League roster. Here are a couple things to take note of:
- No sight of Lucas Nogueira sadly, as he wasn’t cleared by FIBA to participate in games according to the Hawks twitter account. He could still be cleared to play later in the week however.
- Cunningham, Mack, Jenkins, Scott, Schröder, and Muscala are all guys who were either on the Hawks roster last year, or have a contract going into next year. These will be the guys to watch for over the next ten days.
- Nobody on the roster who could be classified as an “undrafted talent who could actually make an NBA roster.” So don’t expect anything crazy out of the unknown player group.
- Paul Millsap’s older brother John is on the roster. John played 42 games for the Utah Flash in the NBA D-League in 2007-08, but is mostly on the roster because he is the brother of the team’s big off-season acquisition.
- Standing at 7’3″ with a condor-like 7’8 wingspan, Boban Marjonovic is easily the most intriguing name on the roster. However, he seems like a skill-less big body that gets run during Summer League simply because he is indeed big. He does have a 9’7″ standing reach though – same as Rudy Gobert – so he will be a fun watch over the next few days.
- Hawks 2009 second round pick Segiy Gladyr also makes an appearance on the roster. Gladyr also played for the Hawks’ summer league team in 2010 however, so it would take a monumental surprise for him to be on the actual team’s roster anytime soon.
Here is the entire roster.
