Mike Bruesewitz a part of the Bucks summer league roster



MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- Milwaukee Bucks General Manager John Hammond announced Wednesday the team's roster for the 2013 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. Current Bucks John Henson, Gustavo Ayon and Ish Smith headline this year's roster along with Nate Wolters (38th overall pick), whose draft rights Milwaukee acquired from Philadelphia on June 28. Local collegiate standouts Mike Bruesewitz (Wisconsin) and Junior Cadougan (Marquette) will also participate in the Bucks Summer League camp. The Bucks Summer League entry will be led by head coach Larry Drew and assistant coaches Bob Bender and Nick Van Exel.
The National Basketball Association released the 2013 NBA Summer League schedule last month, featuring a new format that includes a single-elimination tournament to crown the first-ever Summer League Champion. Each of the 22 teams in attendance will play three games from July 12-16, with Milwaukee slated to open its Summer League campaign on Saturday, July 13, at 9 p.m. CT vs. Denver. The Bucks will wrap up the opening round with matchups against the New Orleans Pelicans (Sunday, July 14, at 7:30 p.m. CT) and Golden State Warriors (Tuesday, July 16, at 5:30 p.m. CT).
Following the opening three games, the 22 participating teams will be seeded for a single-elimination tournament culminating in the 2013 Summer League Championship game on Monday, July 22. A consolation round will be held for teams failing to advance, guaranteeing that all teams will play a minimum of five games. In all, the 2013 NBA Summer League will feature 61 games scheduled over 11 days at the COX Pavilion and Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.
The television "Voice of the Bucks," Jim Paschke, and Bucks.com crew will be at every Bucks practice and game in Las Vegas, providing exclusive 2013 NBA Summer League coverage including video highlights, interviews and player features.
