MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Bucks have signed second-round draft pick Nate Wolters, who played high school basketball at St. Cloud Tech.
The team announced the signing Thursday. Terms were not disclosed.
The 6-foot-4 point guard played four years at South Dakota State, where he holds school records for scoring (2,353 points), assists (663) and free throws made (644).
Wolters scored a school-record 53 points and broke another mark with nine 3-pointers in a win over IPFW last February. He led the 14th-seeded Jackrabbits to their first NCAA tournament appearance in the 2011-12 season and another trip last year.
As a senior last season, Wolters averaged 22.3 points, 5.6 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game. He became the first Summit League player to earn AP All-American honors when he was named to the third team.
