MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee Bucks player MarJon Beauchamp took to Twitter Thursday and shared a video of the moment he told his mom he had bought her a house.

During the first round of the 2022 NBA Draft, the Milwaukee Bucks used their 24th pick to select NBA G League Ignite wing Beauchamp, a major change for the 6-foot-5, 21-year-old.

See, Beauchamp experienced a stretch of homelessness as a kid, constantly shifted from one high school to another, and even had to endure a canceled NBA Draft training program due to the pandemic.
