MILWAUKEE (WLUK) -- The Milwaukee Bucks' first-round draft choice and a home-state star are both officially in the fold.

D.J. Wilson signed a rookie scale contract with the Bucks, the team announced Thursday. The former Michigan Wolverine was the 17th overall pick in last month's draft.


According to a projection by Forbes, the contract could guarantee Wilson more than $4.6 million over the first two years, with team options pushing the total to nearly $11 million over four years.

Meanwhile, La Crosse native and former University of Wisconsin star Bronson Koenig also signed a contract with the Bucks on Thursday.


According to the team, Koenig signed a two-way contract, which means he will spend the majority of his time playing for the Oshkosh-based Wisconsin Herd of the NBA Gatorade League, but can spend as much as 45 days with Milwaukee.


Both Wilson and Koenig are on the Bucks' summer league roster.
