Bucks obtain F Pachulia from Bobcats
Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) – The Milwaukee Bucks Wednesday acquired
forward Zaza Pachulia from the expansion Charlotte Bobcats in exchange for a
second-round pick in this year’s NBA Draft.
The draft is set for Thursday night. Milwaukee does not have a first-round
pick in the draft because it dealt it away in 2001.
Pachulia, 20, was taken by the Orlando Magic with the 42nd pick of the 2003
NBA Draft. He averaged 3.3 points and 2.9 rebounds last season for Orlando and
was selected by Charlotte during Tuesday’s expansion draft.
The 6’11” Pachulia started playing for Turkey’s professional basketball league
at age 15.
