Second-round pick Hugo Besson, acquired by the Bucks in a draft-night deal, will play for France’s Metropolitans 92 next season, the French team tweets.
The club currently plays in the LNB Pro A, the highest-tier level in French basketball.
The pick was originally owned by Phoenix but the Pacers held it entering draft night. They received cash for the pick and the Bucks took the 21-year-old guard for draft-and-stash purposes.
Besson was the last pick of the draft at No. 58 and had remained unsigned. He played for the New Zealand Breakers last season, averaging 13.9 PPG, 4.0 RPG and 2.3 RPG in 25 games.
He joined the Bucks’ Summer League team and averaged 2.5 PPG and 11.4 MPG in four games.

Dang, if only he was the 12th man of the bench this year. He would gain such more from that. Experiencing the grind of the NBA would be great for the future great young Buck.
Is going to play with Wembanyama in France. Probably a good thing for both of their development
