Atlanta Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer has settled on a rotation with Shelvin Mack and Lou Williams as the backcourt reserves, which means rookie Dennis Schroder is not getting any time. With that in mind, GM Danny Ferry and Budenholzer decided to send Schroder to their D-League affiliate, the Bakersfield (Calif.) Jam, to get some much needed game action.
