Bucks Take Youngest Player In NBA Draft



At 18 years of age, the Milwaukee Bucks selected the youngest player eligible in the 2013 NBA Draft last night. Giannis Antetokounmpo, a 6-9 forward from Greece, was the name called by NBA Commissioner David Stern with the 15th overall selection in the first round.

Milwaukee General Manager John Hammond ignored a need at shooting guard with the departure of Monta Ellis and “took the best player available.” The upside on the 18 year old is tremendous according to Hammond but his stat line in the “B League” of the Greece league last year was unimpressive to say the very least.

Antetokounmpo averaged 9.5 points and 5.0 rebounds in 26 games last season for Filathlitikos in Greece’s second division.

In the second round, the Bucks selected Providence guard Ricky Ledo. Milwaukee then traded next year’s second round draft pick and Ledo to the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for South Dakota State’s Nate Wolters.

The last time Milwaukee made a draft day trade with Dallas, the Bucks traded Dirk Nowitzki away in exchange for Robert “Tractor” Traylor.
