The Milwaukee Bucks are apparently looking to fill their open roster spots left by Caron Butler and Gary Neal. Their first move is to sign Milwaukee native F Tony Mitchell to a 10-day contract. Mitchell is the first North Texas player to be drafted in the NBA since the Dallas Mavericks drafted John Horrocks in 1984. Drafted by the Detroit Pistons with the 37th overall pick in 2013.
Mitchell has been on assigment by the Pistons in the Development League since January 31st, playing for the Fort Wayne Mad Ants until the Bucks made the announcement.

When the 2013 rookie class convened for its annual photo shoot and filled out its NBA.com Rookie Survey, the class voted Mitchell as the most athletic. He was averaging 19.4 PPG.
