CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Charlotte Bobcats selected Tennessee forward Tobias Harris with the 19th pick in the NBA draft and will send him to Milwaukee as part of a three-team trade.
A person familiar with the deal says the Bobcats will send Harris to the Bucks as part of Thursday’s deal. The Bucks also received Charlotte forward Stephen Jackson and guard Beno Udrih from Sacramento, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been announced.
The 6-foot-8 Harris averaged 15.3 points and 7.3 rebounds as a freshman with the Volunteers. He could provide needed athleticism on the front line Milwaukee, the NBA’s lowest-scoring team last season.
