The Wisconsin Herd, the NBA G League affiliate of the Milwaukee Bucks, acquired the returning player rights to Cliff Alexander in a trade with the Long Island Nets. The Herd also received Long Island’s fourth-round pick in the 2018 NBA G League Draft. In return, the Herd traded two 2018 second-round selections – the team’s own and the recently acquired pick from Greensboro.
“Cliff is a highly-skilled big man who is among the best in the league at his position,” said Herd General Manager Dave Dean. “He has a tremendous upside and we are excited to add him to the Wisconsin Herd family.”
Alexander, 21, averaged 20.6 points per game and 10 rebounds per game in 18 games played with Long Island last season. He is a former McDonald’s All-American and was named the West Team’s Most Valuable Player in the 2014 Jordan Brand Classic national game.
