The Milwaukee Bucks selected 19-year old Sudanese-Australian center Thon Maker with the No. 10 overall pick in Thursday’s NBA Draft.
Maker was the Virginia high school player of the year in 2014, before playing in Canada and Australia the next two seasons. To be sure, Maker has some developing to do. Despite his 7-1 frame, Maker only weighs 218 pounds.
With the 36th overall pick, the Bucks selected All-American shooting guard, Malcolm Brogdon from Virginia.
The Bucks traded the rights to the 38th pick to the Golden State Warriors for $2.4 million dollars in cash.
Rice Lake native Henry Ellenson, who played one season collegiately at Marquette, was projected by many to be a lottery pick. Instead, he falls to No. 18, where he was selected by the Detroit Pistons.
Whitefish Bay Dominican graduate Diamond Stone was selected in the second round by the New Orleans Pelicans.
