Former Jackrabbit Nate Wolters begins his career in the NBA Saturday, after leading South Dakota State to the big dance two years in a row.
Saturday evening, Wolters hits the hardwood in the NBA Summer League for the first time with the Milwaukee Bucks.
Wolters and the Milwaukee Bucks face the Denver Nuggets at 9 p.m. at the Cox Pavilion on the campus of UNLV.
Players got a chance to familiarize themselves with the facility Saturday morning in the team's shootaround. Taken by the Bucks with the 38th pick in last month's NBA draft, Wolters should get plenty of opportunities to lead the team Saturday evening. He spent much of the day's practice taking the team through different plays called by the coaches.
While he's getting used to a lot of new faces, Wolters says he's getting the hang of things so far.
"It should be a lot of fun. First game. We had a couple practices with the coaches and the coaching staff and everything. It's been good to get comfortable with them and the other players. Looking forward to playing some games," Wolters said.
Wolters spent part of practice getting fed by Nick Van Exel and knocking down shots.
