Although it may have been hard to see because of their league-worst 15-67 record, there were actually a couple of bright spots for the Milwaukee Bucks this season.
Both of their rookies, swingman Giannis Antetokounmpo, the 15th overall pick and point guard Nate Wolters, the 38th overall pick, showed promise.
According to Charles F. Gardner of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, both Antetokounmpo and Wolters will play in Summer League.
Bucks vice president of player personnel Dave Babcock and general manager John Hammond witnessed the workout. It’s still business as usual for the Bucks even while the sale of the team to billionaire investors Marc Lasry and Wesley Edens is being finalized.
Babcock said the Bucks should have an intriguing summer league team in Las Vegas. The plan is for second-year players Giannis Antetokounmpo and Nate Wolters to play on the squad, and the Bucks’ draft picks also should be there.
“In the summer, you can put them (Antetokounmpo and Wolters) in positions they weren’t in last year,” Babcock said. “Giannis can be the focal point of the offense, and Nate can run the show. It’s a lot different.”
Antetokounmpo averaged 6.8 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game while Wolters went for 7.2 points, 3.2 assists and 2.6 rebounds per game.
