The Hawks have continued their trend of draft and stashing European prospects in the second round. It saves the team money and the team is starting to build a European farm system of sorts.

In the 2012-13 season, he averaged over 50% from 3. It looks like Eriksson may have some potential as a sharpshoooting role player in the NBA. He’s still just 20 years old, and he will stay overseas to build his game:
