MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Milwaukee Bucks have signed second-round
pick Jodie Meeks to a three-year contract.
Meeks is a 6-foot-4 guard who played three years at Kentucky and
averaged 15.4 points in 81 games with the Wildcats. The 41st
overall selection in the draft will participate in the NBA Summer
League in Las Vegas, beginning Friday.
Meeks made his mark last season, scoring a team-record 54 points
against Tennessee and finishing the year as the Southeastern
Conference's leading scorer.
The 21-year-old Meeks will likely back up guard Michael Redd,
who was also a second-round pick in 2000.
