North America is a better place with Andrius Rautins in it. And so, North America is now better.
Milwaukee Bucks General Manager John Hammond announced the team’s roster for the 2012 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas and Andy, Son of Leo, is on it.
Milwaukee will play five games from July 16-22 during the 2012 NBA Summer League, with two of those matchups featuring top-5 picks from last week’s NBA Draft. The Bucks will take on No. 1 pick Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Hornets in Milwaukee’s Summer League opener on July 16 (9:30 p.m. CDT) and clash with No. 3 pick Bradley Beal and the Washington Wizards on July 18 (3 p.m. CDT). All games will be played at the Thomas & Mack Center or Cox Pavilion on UNLV’s campus.
The Bucks will take on the Celtics Saturday, July 21, so we'll get to see a nice Syracuse-y affair. Or at least hear about it.
Of his recent home on the Mediterranean Sea, Rautins told Syracuse.com that "the quality of life here is very rich." If he makes the roster, I'm sure Milwaukee will fulfill those same expectations.
