Milwaukee Bucks Select Jordan Nwora at No. 45

Milwaukee takes the Louisville forward in the second round

NCAA Basketball: Syracuse at Louisville Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

Well, at long last. We have the Milwaukee Bucks’ first selection of draft night. After their first round was sent to New Orleans as part of the Jrue Holiday deal, Milwaukee selected Jordan Nwora with the 45th pick.

Nwora is a 6’5” Small Forward who averaged 13.9 points per game and six rebounds per game. He poses a catch-and-shoot threat and led Louisville in scoring during his sophomore season at 17.0 PPG. His basketball IQ is listed as one of his strongest attributes, and he also boasts nifty ball-handling skills. He’s also characterized as “more athletic than he looks” by a few outlets.

Here’s a highlight video of the Louisville product:

The Bucks will be on the clock again in 15 picks at No. 60.
