The draft is over, and with it Rashad Vaughn's career has officially begun. Vaughn met the media on Friday after being drafted 17th overall by the Bucks on Thursday, with the newly-acquired Greivis Vasquez interrupting the presser with a call to John Hammond from his native Venezuela.
Needless to say it was a whirlwind day for the soft-spoken 18-year-old Minnesota native -- check out all the highlights below, plus some more background video from high school, college and pre-draft workouts.

High School Highlights
Interesting to see how bouncy he looked back in his high school days -- hopefully his injury problems haven't robbed him of his ability to throw down off-handed between-the-legs dunks in games (Jason Kidd would love that, right?), Weirdly I haven't see any highlights of him dunking at UNLV...
