A babyface comes to Milwaukee

Talk about a young buck. The Milwaukee Bucks selected Giannis Antetokounmpo, the youngest player in the draft, with their first round choice, 15th overall.

Antetokounmpo, 18, hails from Greece. He is a small forward with a reported wingspan of 7-2, despite being only 6-9.

The small forward's wingspan paired with the shot-blocking skills of current Bucks' forward Larry Sanders, could turn the Bucks' front court into a shot-blocking machine.

Scouting profiles have Antetokounmpo as a project player but the young Grecian insists he is ready.

The Bucks could keep him in the NBA Developmental League (D-League) while he matures and learns to handle the competition that is American Professional Basketball, or they could play him right away.

Regardless of their choice, the Bucks need to add some free agents this off-season.
