Two days ago the Milwaukee Bucks announced the signing of Wisconsin Native, and former Badgers forward Marcus Landry to an NBA contract.
Landry has bounced around the league since his time at UW, and has also played overseas. Landry is glad to finally be home and play for his favorite team growing up.
Marcus Landry: “To be home, it just means a lot to me. It’s a great opportunity for me to make this team and be at home amongst the community where i do a lot of things. Just to be an example. I really look forward to this season, I look forward to this opportunity. We have a lot of stuff, a lot of memorabilia, just coming to the bucks games at a young age, so it’s an overwhelming moment for me at times when I really sit back and look at it, but it’s definitely going to be a great experience.”
