Bucks welcome draft picks

Posted:

Milwaukee, WISCONSIN (WXOW)  The Bucks adding some new pieces in last night's NBA draft that probably won't have an immediate impact but have, what scouts and general manager's call, a tremendous "up-side."

On Friday the team introduced first round pick Giannis Antetokounmpo from Greece and point guard Nate Wolters from South Dakota State.

Antetokounmpo is just 18 years old.

He's 6-feet, 9-inches and thin.

But in a draft that didn't many marquee players the Bucks are hoping Giannis can develop into one in a few years.

"The thing that makes me special in the game is that I'm an unselfish point guard. I pass the ball to my teammates and when my team needs me to score, I will score," said Antetokuonmpo.

"Just watching this kid, he has a tremendous, tremendous upside. His size, his speed, his quickness and just his skill level at his age is just unbelievable," said Bucks head coach Larry Drew.
