ATLANTA (AP)  -- The Atlanta Hawks have given new starting point guard Dennis Schroder a four-year contract extension.
   The Hawks committed to Schroder by trading Jeff Teague to Indiana in the offseason and added to the commitment with the deal Wednesday that matches the four-year contract given to small forward Kent Bazemore in the offseason.
   The 23-year-old Schroder spent the last three seasons as Teague's backup. He set career highs with his averages of 11 points and 4.4 assists last season. The Hawks are 11-5 in his 16 career starts.
   Schroder announced the deal on his Twitter account. The German player said he was "Glad to be here 4 more years."
   Hawks coach and president of basketball operations Mike Budenholzer said Schroder has become "an elite competitor."
   Terms of the deal were not immediately available.
