Former Seton Hall standout Jeremy Hazell is expected to take part in rookie mini-camp and then be part of the Atlanta Hawks entry in the 2012 Vegas Summer League. The Hawks are expected to host a rookie camp on July 9-12 with the summer league in Vegas beginning on July 13 and lasting through July 22.
Hazell took part in a free agent camp hosted by the Hawks last summer before being forced to seek other opportunities due to the NBA Lockout. Hazell played briefly in Spain and was in training camp with the Phoenix Suns once the lockout ended.
Given Atlanta's salary cap situation they will no doubt be looking for cheap and affordable talent which makes their rookie mini-camp and summer league entry that much more important. Hazell is a 6-foot-5 shooting guard that was a good scorer in college averaging just under 20 points per game during his senior year at Seton Hall.
