Nate Wolters may have went in the second round of the 2013 NBA Draft, but he is still a very talented player. So, could he have an impact for the Milwaukee Bucks?

Why not? Wolters may have played at South Dakota State, which is nowhere near being a powerhouse in college basketball, but he still made 64 threes last year.

Just for the record, he made those shots at a rate of 37.9 percent. He also grabbed 5.6 rebounds per game and dished out 5.8 assists per game. His 1.7 steals per contest were also pretty good. However, it is his 22.3 points per game that had everyone excited. Will he average that many points in the NBA? Probably not, but that is okay.

He can still be a great shooter and he has that scoring mindset, hence why he scored 19+ points per game for three seasons in a row in college hoops.

If Wolters seems to be the scoring threat in the NBA that he was in college, why not give him the playing time? We will find out how much playing time he will actually receive once the season starts, but if he has anywhere near the impact that he had in college, the Bucks got a steal by picking him up.

Milwaukee finished 12th in points per game last season, so it could sure use another scorer. More than likely, Wolters will be a threat off the bench who can drain from anywhere on the court. However, we will have to wait and see if he will have an impact once the season starts, but it is certainly not out of the question.
