The Milwaukee Bucks signed their second round draft pick Nate Wolters today, who was acquired on NBA Draft night from the Philadelphia 76ers. The guard was originally selected by the Washington Wizards with the 38th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft.
He was then shipped to Philadelphia before being moved to the Milwaukee Bucks. In exchange for the draft rights to Wolters, the Milwaukee Bucks sent the draft rights to Ricky Ledo, the 43rd overall pick in the draft, and a future second round pick to the Sixers.
Wolters is another part of the Milwaukee Bucks complete backcourt overhaul. Pretty much every guard they had last year is gone’ including of course the disgruntled and malcontent Brandon Jennings, also the team’s best player. The backcourt makeover won’t really make the Milwaukee Bucks a better team though. I expect them to take a step back this NBA season. Wolters played four years of college basketball at South Dakota State University (2009-13) and left holding school records for scoring (2,353 points), assists (663) and free throws made (644). He is one of only four players in Division I history to leave school with 2,000 points, 600 rebounds and 600 assists, and the only player in South Dakota State history to surpass the 2,000-point mark.
