RICHMOND, Va. – JeQuan Lewis didn't hear his name called on draft night, but he's going to get his shot at the NBA anyway.
Lewis, who averaged 15.2 points and 4.5 assists for VCU this season, has agreed to join the Milwaukee Bucks as a free agent, he confirmed Friday. Lewis will play for the Bucks team in the Las Vegas Summer League July 7-17, as well as suit up for training camp later this summer.
A First Team All-Atlantic 10 Conference selection in 2016-17, Lewis led the Rams to a 26-9 record, as well as the A-10 title game and the program's seventh straight NCAA Tournament appearance.
He ranks 16th in school history with 1,444 points, fifth in steals (205), sixth in assists (505), eighth in 3-pointers (189) and second in free throw percentage (.820).
In addition to the Bucks, Lewis worked out for the Wizards, Nuggets, Clippers, Celtics and Nets this spring.
Lewis looks to join a growing fraternity of VCU alumni who have reached the NBA as an undrafted free agent. Former Rams Treveon Graham (Hornets), Briante Weber (Hornets) and Troy Daniels (Grizzlies) all played in the NBA this year, despite being undrafted.
