MILWAUKEE The Milwaukee Bucks have signed second-round draft pick Johnny O'Bryant.

General manager John Hammond announced the signing Wednesday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The 6-foot-9 O'Bryant averaged 8.2 rebounds and 5.4 rebounds in five NBA Summer League games in Las Vegas, playing about 18 minutes a contest. O'Bryant averaged 12.7 points and 7.7 rebounds in three seasons at LSU before being selected with the 36th overall pick last month.

Milwaukee signed forward Jabari Parker the second overall pick this month. This was a key draft for a franchise with new ownership and new coach Jason Kidd coming off an NBA-worst 15-67 record.
