Bucks Pick Jennings, Meeks in NBA Draft
The Milwaukee Bucks have picked guard Jodie Meeks in the second round of the NBA draft with the 41st pick, adding a sharpshooter on a team that's in need of scoring punch after trading Richard Jefferson to the San Antonio Spurs.
Earlier Thursday night, the Bucks picked Brandon Jennings 10th overall to be their point guard of the future.
Meeks came out after his junior year at Kentucky. He set a single-game record with 54 points by hitting 10 3-pointers against Tennessee and averaged 23.7 points his final year with the Wildcats.
Milwaukee has had good luck in recent years in the second round, picking Michael Redd in 2000, Dan Gadzuric in 2002, Ramon Sessions in 2007 and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute last year. All four remain with the Bucks.
