After a number of first round moves by the Milwaukee Bucks at the NBA
draft, things settle down in the second round. The Bucks used their second round pick (40th overall) on Badger forward Jon Leuer.
The 6’10 Leuer averaged 18.3 points per game with the Wisconsin Badgers during his senior season last year. He shot over 36% from 3-point range over his career.
Leuer is the 5th Badger player to be selected by the Bucks and the first since Rashard Griffith in 1995.
Prior to Leuer, the last Badger to be drafted by an NBA team was Alando Tucker, taken with the 29th overall pick by the Phoenix Suns in 2007.
