Report: Bucks might keep this year's second-round pick overseas

BY foxsports • June 11, 2015

In addition to having the 17th pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, the Milwaukee Bucks also own the 46th pick in the second round. 

While the Bucks have enough versatility on the roster to take the best player available at both draft spots, they may not have enough space to keep both players, depending on what happens with restricted free agent forward Khris Middleton and forward Jared Dudley, who owns a player option for next season.

With that in mind, the Bucks could look to "draft and stash" with their second round selection. Here's what Bucks director of scouting Billy McKinney told Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:  

"There's going to be some players that we'll look at or that we're looking at overseas that we might not bring in...that we might select and have stay overseas," McKinney said. "However, a lot can happen before the draft. Roster spots can be cleared up. In addition to that there's also the possibility of (international) guys coming in and playing well and they'll be invited back for summer league."
