The Milwaukee Bucks have signed undrafted rookie and former Wisconsin Badger standout Bronson Koenig to a Two-Way contract.

NBA rules permit teams to have two Two-Way players on their roster at any given time, in addition to their 15-man regular-season roster. The terms for the Two-Way contract, which are similar to those used in Minor League Baseball, allow a G League player to spend time during the regular season with his affiliated parent team and gain NBA experience. Financial details for the contract was not disclosed, as per team policy.

Koenig earned All-Big Ten Second Team and the Big Ten All-Tournament Team accolades following his senior season at UW. The La Crosse, Wis., native helped lead the Badgers to four straight Sweet Sixteens and finished his collegiate career with the school record for 3-pointers made (270).

Koenig has also become known as a force off the court, an ardent supporter of and activist for the Ho-Chunk Nation, of which he is a member and was very supportive of the Standing Rock protests earlier this year.

Additionally, the Bucks also signed undrafted rookie JeQuan Lewis from Virginia Commonwealth University to a free agent contract.
