Milwaukee Bucks Introduce Nate Wolters to the Media [AUDIO]
The whirlwind that has been the life of former South Dakota State guard Nate Wolters landed him in his new NBA home Friday morning – Milwaukee, Wisconsin – where Wolters was introduced along with the Bucks’ first round draft pick, Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Wolters NBA Draft experience Thursday was unique to say the least.
The evening began when he was selected by the Washington Wizards with the eighth pick of the second round (#38 overall). Moments later, the Wizards dealt him to the Philadelphia 76ers for Glen Rice, Jr.
Things weren’t done just yet, as the Sixers then traded Wolters to the Bucks in exchange for the #43 pick, Ricky Ledo and a 2014 second round pick.
Unbelievable night! Thanks for all the support and texts. Impossible to get back to everyone so just wanna say thank you!!
