Trade nets point guard for BucksSubmitted: 06/28/2013
Story By Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

MILWAUKEE - 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.
