Giannis Antetokounmpo got right to it after the Milwaukee Bucks selected MarJon Beauchamp with the 24th overall pick in the NBA draft.
According to CBS58’s Scott Grodsky, the two-time MVP texted Beauchamp on draft day, saying: “Welcome to the team, let’s go win a ship.”
The Bucks selected the athletic G-League slasher with their late first-round pick hoping to add some length to their squad.
Standing at 6-6, and just under 200 pounds, Beauchamp has all the tools to become a standout two-way threat if he can continue to develop his skillset.
The lanky guard-forward showed flashes of three-level scoring ability which Milwaukee will look to unlock as they try to get back to the top of the NBA mountain.
Coming off another MVP-caliber campaign this past season, Giannis and a healthy Bucks squad should once again be right in the thick of the Eastern Conference race.
