Marcus Eriksson was drafted by the Atlanta Hawks in the second round of June’s NBA draft and he has a talent that could guarantee him a spot on the roster when he comes over from Europe.

The team tweeted out a video of the 6'7" Swedish shooting guard hitting three consecutive half court shots in 15 seconds.

Even if Eriksson couldn't do anything else on the court, it would probably be worth it to use him as the NBA's first-quarter closer and just let him fire up buzzer beaters.

Eriksson was taken with the 50th pick overall and spent much of last season on the bench for FC Barcelona after tearing his ACL and meniscus.
