Bucks welcome draft picks


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.
