Bozeman Completes Summer League Play

By Bruin Basketball Report

Former Bruin Cedric Bozeman scored 11 points and handed out 3 assists to help lead the Atlanta Hawks to victory over the Philadelphia Sixers in the team's final game of the Rocky Mountain Revue (RMR) summer league in Salt Lake City.

With the Hawks' summer roster lacking a true point-guard, Bozeman started all six games, playing primarily in the backcourt, averaging 7.7 points, 2.0 rebounds, and 1.5 assists in 23 minutes per game.

While he only shot 43.6% from the field, he did hit on 44% (4-9) from three-point distance and 80% from the free throw line.

Marvin Williams, Atlanta's first-round draft selection from last season, led the Hawks' summer team in scoring with 23.2 point per game. After an unremarkable rookie season, Williams vowed to be more aggressive, and displayed his new fiery brand of play at RMR getting to the free throw line 66 times in only five games while making 88% of his shots from the stripe.

The Hawks first-round selection this year, Shelden Williams, averaged 8 points and 6.3 rebounds per game, while their second-round selection Solomon Jones averaged just 2.8 points in 17 minutes of play per game.

The Atlanta Hawks training camp opens on October 3rd. It is not yet known whether Bozeman will receive an invitation to the Hawks' camp. Stay tuned.
