Milwaukee took Wilson, a forward out of the University of Michigan, with the 17th pick in the draft last Thursday.
Wilson fits well with the modus operandi of other Bucks' recent selections. He is listed at over 6'10 with a 7'3 wingspan, joining Giannis Antetokounmpo and Thon Maker as Bucks youngsters with massive reaches.
At a news conference, Wilson was asked what he would add to the Bucks:
“I think the Bucks organization, they just have versatility and that’s what I bring immediately on both ends of the court being able to play multiple positions.”
Wilson seems to know his role already:
"Length fits in perfectly with this team, and my nick name @Lanky_Smoove fits in with the Bucks" -- D.J. Wilson
