MILWAUKEE, WI (LEARFIELD-WSAU) It was “Wisconsin Day” yesterday at the Milwaukee Bucks’ pre-draft workouts. The Bucks auditioned Badger graduates Jared Berggren and Mike Bruesewitz.
The 6-10 Berggren has now worked out for five N-B-A teams in advance of the June 27th Draft – and he has three more teams to visit during the next week. Bruesewitz had his first N-B-A team workout. He said he felt totally healthy after a severe right leg injury just before last season.
Bucks’ scouting director Billy McKinney says Berggren might be taken in the second. McKinney said Badger players often need to make a big adjustment to the faster pro game, after playing under Bo Ryan’s deliberate and effective style in Madison.
U-W Milwaukee senior guard Paris Gulley also auditioned with the Bucks yesterday – along with Farmingdale State forward A-J Matthews, Santa Clara guard Kevin Foster, and Colorado forward Andre Roberson.
