Milwaukee Bucks To Work Out Dante Exum, Andrew Wiggins

The Milwaukee Bucks will hold workouts for top draft prospects Dante Exum and Andrew Wiggins, according to a report.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Monday that Exum, an Australian combo guard, will work out for the Bucks this weekend.

Milwaukee has the No. 2 overall selection in the June 26 NBA Draft.

Meanwhile, Wiggins—a Canadian wing player who spent last season at the University of Kansas—is scheduled to work out for the club later this week.

Exum, who won’t turn 19 until July, is a 6-foot-6 guard who can play either the point or shooting guard spots, but doesn’t have a vast body of work to examine.

He’s not played a lot outside of Australia, but wowed scouts last year at the Nike Hoop Summit in Portland, Ore., and the Under-19 World Championships in Prague, Czech Republic, last summer.

Exum helped Australia reach the semifinals of the tournament and Bucks executive Dave Babcock scouted the tournament.

Wiggins, a 6-foot-8 forward, came into last season at Kansas rated as the consensus No. 1 overall pick, but slipped somewhat after averaging 17.1 points and 5.9 rebounds per game and having a poor showing against Stanford as the Jayhawks were upset in the third round of the NCAA tournament.

Wiggins is still highly regarded for his athleticism and potential and has shown enough athleticism to be able to play either the small forward or shooting guard spots.

The thought of combining him with 6-foot-9 Giannis Antetokounmpo at the wing positions would have to give opposing coaches nightmares for the matchup problems such a pairing could create.
