Thursday, June 23, 2011
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Bucks have selected guard Jimmer Fredette with the 10th pick in the first round of Thursday's NBA draft, but are expected to send the rights to Sacramento as part of a three-team trade.
The 6-foot-2 Fredette averaged 28.9 points his senior season for BYU and set career records at the school for points, 3-pointers, 30-point games, 40-point games and wins in a career.
He won nearly every collegiate national player of the year honor including the Naismith, Wooden, AP and the USBWA awards, among others.
Milwaukee, Charlotte and Sacramento agreed in principle to the five-player trade in the hours before the draft. The Bucks are expected to receive guards Stephen Jackson, Shaun Livingston and the rights to the 19th pick from the Bobcats and Beno Udrih from the Kings for John Salmons, Corey Maggette and the rights to the 10th pick.
