Koenig signs with Bucks

MADISON WI- MARCH 5 Wisconsin Badgers guard Bronson Koenig takes a 3 point shot during an college basketball game between the Minnesota Golden Gophers and the Wisconsin Badgers at the Kohl Center in Madison WI on March 5th 2017. Wisconsin defeat

On that day, Onalaska High School beat Aquinas 49-48 in overtime in front of around 5,100 at the La Crosse Center.

After the conclusion of the 2017 NBA Draft, it was reported both Koenig and Hayes locked down NBA contracts.

It is also worth noting that Wolfson added to his early Friday morning report by mentioning that Hayes' former Wisconsin teammate, sharpshooter Bronson Koenig, has committed to the Milwaukee Bucks after failing to come off the board himself. Hayes will now get the chance to impress the Knicks at summer league and during camp, but his deal is only partially guaranteed and he's not a lock to make the roster. The two teams are not scheduled to play each other in pool play but could face off in the summer league playoffs July 13-16.

Koenig played four seasons for the Badgers, appearing in 144 games and finishing his career as the Badgers' 10th all-time scorer with 1,459 points.

Before going to Wisconsin, Koenig was a four-year starter for the Blugolds and helped them win Division 3 championships twice. He finished third all-time in 3-pointers made for the Cyclones.

Very simply, these two-way contacts are a way for teams to hold on to the rights of young players who will most likely see more time in the D-League than the National Basketball Association.

In Koenig's case, that means he will be playing for either the Bucks or the Wisconsin Herd in Oshkosh. Schedules for those games have not been released yet.
