Bucks pass on Dekker; go with Vaughn at #17

Posted: Updated:
  MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Bucks have selected UNLV shooting guard Rashad Vaughn with the No. 17 overall pick in Thursday's NBA draft.
   The 6-foot-6, 210 pound Vaughn will be expected to provide additional outside scoring for the Bucks, who are coming off a surprising turnaround last season -- their first under head coach Jason Kidd.
   Vaughn is coming off a season-ending injury to his left knee but averaged 17.8 points per game in 23 games as a freshman, shooting 43.9 percent from the floor and 38.3 percent from 3-point range.
   The Bucks expect to have last year's No. 2 pick, Jabari Parker, back next season to go with Giannis Antetokounmpo and point guard Michael Carter-Williams.
