The Milwaukee Bucks announced their 2014 Vegas Summer League roster yesterday.
The group is headlined by Jabari Parker and Giannis Antetokounmpo. Nate Wolters and Chris Wright of last season’s Bucks and second round selection Johnny O’Bryant will be making the trip as well.
Among non-roster players, former Purdue center JaJuan Johnson likely has the most potential. As a senior at Purdue, he was the Big 10 Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the year. He was selected 27th overall in the first round of the 2011 NBA draft by the New Jersey Nets and traded to the Boston Celtics, where he played 36 games as a rookie. Shortly after summer league 2012, Johnson was traded to the Houston Rockets, who waived him before the start of the season. He spent 2013 bouncing around the D-League before heading to Europe last season.
Ben Brust and Jordan Taylor are your former Badgers. The team has no former Marquette players.
In a matchup of the top two picks of the 2014 NBA Draft Milwaukee opens its Summer League campaign on Friday, July 11, at 7 p.m. CT against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Bucks continue their opening round with games against the Phoenix Suns (Sunday, July 13, at 9 p.m. CT) and Utah Jazz (Monday, July 14, at 9:30 p.m. CT).
