BROOKLYN, N.Y. (WFRV) – On Thursday night, the 2023 NBA draft kicked off with pure craziness and the Milwaukee Bucks were a part of it all.
According to multiple reports, in a deal with the Magic, the Bucks have acquired Orlando’s 36th overall draft pick – Andre Jackson Jr.
The UConn product started 31 games for the Huskies last season and was a part of the team’s national championship run. Jackson averaged 29.1 minutes and 6.7 points per game during his junior season in 2022-23.
With the last pick in the 2023 NBA Draft, the Bucks selected Chris Livingston with the 58th pick.
Livingston, a freshman forward out of Kentucky, is a product of the historic Oak Hill Academy. In his only season as a Wildcat, he earned SEC All-Freshman Team honors while starting all 34 games.
Scouts say that Livingston is known for his defensive versatility and toughness. He averaged 6.3 points and 4.2 rebounds in 2023.
