We had a good sense that the Bucks' Vegas Summer League team was going to be fun, and today the Bucks made it official.
As expected, the Vegas Bucks will be headlined by #2 overall pick Jabari Parker and second year standout Giannis Antetokounmpo, though they've got nice depth up and down the roster with Nate Wolters, 36th overall pick Johnny O'Bryant III and small forward Chris Wright also expected to participate.
Among non-roster guys, former Badgers Ben Brust and Jordan Taylor should see decent minutes in the backcourt. The Bucks will travel to Vegas early next week with new head coach Jason Kidd to kick off three days of practice before opening play Friday night against 2014 #1 pick Andrew Wiggins and the Cavs.
