Bucks Take Oklahoma's Gallon with Their Final Second Round Pick

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Bucks have taken forward Keith "Tiny" Gallon of Oklahoma with the 47th overall pick in the second round of the NBA draft.

The 6-foot-9, 290-pound Gallon played one year before declaring for the draft. He's part of an NCAA investigation that put his eligibility in doubt over a report his mother was wired $3,000.

Gallon said he knew nothing about the exchange of money. He says he learned it was a loan that was used to pay for his high-school transcripts to be released from Oak Hill Academy so he could attend Oklahoma.

Gallon was high school teammates with Bucks star Brandon Jennings at the Virginia prep school.
