MILWAUKEE (AP) - Former Marquette star Henry Ellenson is getting a look from the Milwaukee Bucks for the NBA draft.

The Rice Lake native worked out for the team on Tuesday. The Bucks have the 10th pick in next week’s draft.

Bucks scouting director Billy McKinney says Ellenson shot the ball well. Ellenson says he has always been comfortable behind the 3-point line, and that he expects the 3 to be a big part of his game in the league.

Ellenson played one year at Marquette, named the Big East’s top freshman in 2015-16. He averaged 17.0 points and 9.7 rebounds a game, and shot 28 percent from behind the 3-point arc.

The Bucks could use a shooter, and their biggest positional needs are at guard and in the post.
