With the 46th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, the Philadelphia 76ers selected SMU’s Sterling Brown, who was then traded to the Bucks, per The Vertical.

Brown, a 6-6 shooting guard who played high school ball in Illinois, is actually the younger brother of former Michigan State great Shannon Brown, and helped lead SMU to a 30-5 record last season after the team was on probation in 2015-2016.

Brown averaged 13.4 points and 6.5 rebounds a game, and was also named second team all American Athletic Conference. He brings defense and solid shooting to Milwaukee, which is always very highly valued in today’s NBA.

After the season, Brown also made national noise in the NABC College All-Star game.

The Bucks have not confirmed the moves yet as the deals are still pending, but should be completed by night’s end.
