Milwaukee Bucks General Manager John Hammond announced today the team’s roster for the 2014 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. Bucks players Giannis Antetokounmpo, Nate Wolters and Chris Wright will lead this year’s squad that is headlined by the second-overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, Jabari Parker. One of Milwaukee’s second-round picks in this year’s draft, Johnny O’Bryant (38th overall) will also be on the team, along with local collegiate standouts Ben Brust and Jordan Taylor (Wisconsin).
Milwaukee is slated to open its Summer League campaign on Friday, July 11, at 7 p.m. CT vs. Cleveland in a matchup that will feature the No. 1 and No. 2 picks in the 2014 NBA Draft, Andrew Wiggins and Parker. The Bucks will continue their opening round play with games against the Phoenix Suns (Sunday, July 13, at 9 p.m. CT) and Utah Jazz (Monday, July 14, at 9:30 p.m. CT). Following the opening three games, the participating teams will be seeded for the single-elimination tournament that will culminate in a championship game on July 21.
