Wednesday night's NBA Draft was unique. It was held virtually in November instead of its usual late June slot because of the pandemic.

The Bucks made their big move Monday night, reportedly trading with New Orleans for guard Jrue Holiday. A possible deal with Sacramento for Bogdan Bogdanovich reportedly could be in jeopardy because he never agreed to the sign and trade.

The Bucks are hoping to convince back-to-back MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo to sign a super max extension sometime between this weekend and the start of the season on December 22nd.

The Bucks had previously traded away their first round choice. With the 45th overall pick in the second round, a selection acquired from Orlando for a couple of future second rounders, the Bucks took forward Jordan Nwora, a good shooter from the University of Louisville.

With the 60th and final pick in the draft -- expected to be acquired from New Orleans in the holiday deal--the Bucks took Utah state shooting guard Sam Merrill.

Just over two years after leading Oshkosh North to a state championship, Tyrese Haliburton from Iowa State was selected 12th by the Sacramento Kings. Wearing a bright suit with very personal and powerful messages, Haliburton watched the draft with family and friends in Oshkosh. He says his goal is to be NBA rookie of the year.

"Being from Wisconsin, I don't know much about Sacramento, but I am looking forward to learning the place and really calling that place home for the rest of my career hopefully. I'm just ready to get there, get familiar with the city. I am from a small town in Wisconsin, so being in California is going to be crazy. I just love the game of basketball and I am invested in it with my whole heart and now that I am in the NBA some people think it's the time to be satisfied, nah I'm ready to get to work and compete, I want to win games. I am ready to get after it."

Marquette's Markus Howard was not drafted and has reportedly signed a two-way deal with the Denver Nuggets.
