Just a week after being waived by the Milwaukee Bucks, former Wisconsin standout Bronson Koenig has found a home with the Chicago Bulls (for now).
ESPN’s Jonathan Givony confirmed that Koenig will sign an exhibit nine training camp contract and will fight for one of two remaining roster spots on the Bulls. He is one of six players battling for the roster spot. Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg recruited Koenig out of high school when he was the coach at Iowa State.
Koenig featured in 5 games for the Milwaukee Bucks summer league team, registering 5.2 points per game and shooting 29.4% from the field. Koenig will look to make the Bulls after going undrafted in the 2017 NBA Draft.
The 2017 Second-Team All-Big Ten player started 36 games during the Badgers run to the Sweet 16. He led the team in scoring with 14.5 points a game, all the while becoming the Badgers’ all-time leader in three-point field goals made with 270 career makes.
