Milwaukee Bucks Sign Billy Rush For Training Camp

The Milwaukee Bucks have signed shooting guard Billy Rush for training camp according to agent Mike Naiditch on Twitter.  Rush, a 6-foot-7 shooting guard out of NAIA Robert Morris, had a pre-draft workout with the Bucks on June 22 but ultimately went undrafted.

Rush averaged 15.8 points and 7.8 rebounds as a senior at Robert Morris, not overly impressive numbers for a player playing against NAIA competition, but the fact that he made 83 of his 207 three-point attempts (40.1%) is definitely an NBA-translatable skill.  Rush also has good size for a shooting guard in the NBA and was training this summer with the world-renowned Tim Grover, two things that will definitely work in his favor for the upcoming season.

While Rush signing with an NBA team right out of an NAIA college may seem like like a bit of a stretch, Robert Morris has recently produced another NBA player that was overlooked in the draft - Utah Jazz wing Othyus Jeffers.

The Bucks will also have Notre Dame point guard Tory Jackson on the roster when training camp opens September 28.
