- The Milwaukee Bucks did find a point guard in Thursday night's draft.It just took a second-round trade to make it happen.According to a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report, South Dakota State's Nate Wolters is expected to be acquired by the Bucks when the trade becomes official, according to a source. Milwaukee took Providence's Ricky Ledo with the 43rd pick.But Ledo was to be sent to Dallas through Philadelphia, which acquired the 38th pick from Washington as part of a deal for Glen Rice Jr. Wolters originally was chosen 38th overall by the Wizards.
The bottom line is Wolters will help the Bucks' depleted backcourt situation. The 6-foot-5 Wolters was a third team All-American with the Jackrabbits last season and ranked fourth in the NCAA in scoring at 22.7 points per game.Wolters is a good ball handler and will get a chance with the Bucks, who have just one guard currently under contract.The Allegiant Athletic Agency, which represents Wolters, confirmed the deal late Thursday."Being drafted to play in the NBA is a dream that I've worked my entire life to achieve," Wolters said in a statement. "Milwaukee is a great organization and I am very appreciative of this opportunity."I can't wait to start my career as a Buck."Brandon Jennings will be a restricted free agent next week while Monta Ellis and J.J. Redick are unrestricted free agents.
