Vaughn part of youth movement for Bucks

Posted: Updated:
 MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WXOW)  The rebuilding of the Bucks is being accelerated after their big improvement last season.
    But a youth movement remains in effect.  

It continued Thursday night with the selection of 18-year old shooting guard Rashad Vaughn in the first round of the NBA Draft.
    Vaughn averaged nearly 18 points a game at Nevada-Las Vegas last season, his only season of college hoops.
    Now the 6-foot, 5-inch Minnesota native is happy to return to the Midwest.  

"I think I just come in and try to find my niche.  I'll do whatever the team need me to do.  Come in and shoot and score.  Whatever the team needs me to do I can do that," Vaughn said at a news conference in Milwaukee Friday.
"He's going to help us throughout the season.  There's going to be times when he plays well.  There's going to be times when he struggles.  For a young man that's just drafted with a young team, that's going to happen.  But there is no pressure.  The goal for him is to get better each day.  He works extremely hard," said Bucks head coach Jason Kidd.
