The Bucks have themselves a Jackrabbit.
After a second-round maneuver, the Bucks ended up with Nate Wolters of South Dakota State, even though the trade won’t be officially named until tomorrow presumably.
Here’s the trade: #Bucks are sending Ricky Ledo and a second round pick in 2014 to Washington for Nate Wolters

There may be more parts and more teams to the trade to be announced, but the core of it is listed there, should it be made official.
In his final season at SDSU, Wolters averaged 22.6 points, 5.5 rebounds and 5.8 assists. He made 38% of his three-pointers (up from 24% the prior season) and 82% of his free throws. His 7.1 free throw attempts per game show a knack for getting to the line. He also led the Jackrabbits to two consecutive appearances in the NCAA tournament.
Wolters measured out at 6’5″ in shoes in the NBA’s pre-draft workouts.
Here’s Wolters — a year and a half ago — breaking out against the Washington Huskies for 30 points. He’s crafty off the bounce and unafraid to pull up for some well-crafted teardrops when the occasion arises. Washington is in a decent Pac-10 conference and Terrence Ross (#31) is on the Toronto Raptors now:
For fun, here’s an old GIF of Wolters in the 2012 Summit League semifinals:
