Milwaukee Bucks sign second round pick Doron Lamb


The Milwaukee Bucks have signed second round draft pick Doron Lamb to a multi-year contract, General Manager John Hammond announced Wednesday. Milwaukee selected Lamb with the 42nd overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft.

Lamb joins the Bucks after completing his sophomore season with the National Champion Kentucky Wildcats. Over his two years at Kentucky, Lamb averaged 13.1 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 78 career games.

He leaves Kentucky as the top three-point shooter in the program's history, connecting on 47.5 percent (144-303) of his attempts from behind the arc. Lamb also joined the 1,000-point club in Kentucky's win over Kansas in the 2012 National Championship game when he scored a team-high 22 points. He finished his career as a Wildcat with 1,018 points.

Lamb was named to the Final Four All-Tournament Team, East Region All-Tournament Team and Second Team All-SEC as a sophomore.

Lamb will play for the Bucks in the 2012 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. Milwaukee has a five-game schedule that begins Monday, July 16, at 9:30 p.m. against New Orleans.
