Wolters Ready For Second NBA Season

August 7, 2014, 10:43 PM

Wolters Ready For Second NBA Season
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Before Nate Wolters emerged as one of the NBA's most surprising rookies, he was a standout at South Dakota State University.  Wednesday, the St. Cloud, Minnesota native hosted a basketball camp in Sioux Falls, allowing Wolters to work with local youth.

"Just work hard and have fun. Hopefully we can give them a couple of things to work on for the rest of the summer to improve their game. So just keep working hard and enjoy it," Milwaukee Bucks guard Nate Wolters said.

Wolters spent the day working with over 250 kids, emphasizing individual offensive skills, shooting fundamentals and drills, footwork, and overall scoring techniques.  Wolters knows first-hand the value these skills can have on young athletes.

"I know growing up I always loved going to these camp and would learn a couple of thing and go home and try and do it back yard that same night. Just trying to give them a few pointers they can take back and work on when their home," Wolters said.

After a solid rookie campaign with Milwaukee, which saw his average over seven points and three assists per game, Wolters himself spent the off-season training in a few key areas as he prepares for his second NBA season.

"Probably, just getting stronger and working on my jump shot. I know I've made some improvement this summer, but obviously I haven't gotten in too many game situations, so it will be nice to get back in September and start playing pick up again and see where my game is at," Wolters said.

The Bucks improved this offseason, as well.   Milwaukee added the number two overall pick in the NBA draft --- Duke's Jabari Parker.  They also added future hall-of-fame guard Jason Kidd as their head coach.  These additions could pay huge dividends during the upcoming campaign.

"I think the new coaching staff - I met them in the summer league seem great. A lot of energy. Should help out a little bit. Obviously getting a guy like Parker, we need a scorer, so that will help too. It will be interesting how the year goes, but I think we will do a lot better," Wolters said.
