Hugo Besson was able to seize a first real chance this night in the victory of the Bucks over Minnesota. The French, selected in 58th position in the draft, signed 6 points at 2/7 including 2/5 at 3-pointers (both in the 1st quarter), 5 rebounds and 1 assist in 18 minutes of play.
“It’s cool, we play good games, and it’s cool to have minutes too, it was my first ‘real’ game so very happy to be on the pitch and to be here. The most important thing is to stay focused on being ready and efficient in the minutes you have. »
At the microphone of the NBL, his former league, he returned to his long evening of June 23 in Brooklyn.
“It was crazy, a bit frustrating of course, because I was rather expecting to be caught at the end of the 1st lap / start of the 2nd so it was a bit confusing but that’s how it is. My agent told me 2 choices before me that I was going to be the 58th, I was torn between being happy and saying to myself ‘mash, 58th, I’m the last of this draft’. It was a weird feeling. The evening was so long, 5 hours or something like that, it was crazy. But in the end that’s what I wanted so it’s cool.
Now I’m with the Bucks and I’m happy to be with them and to have this opportunity to try to get on the roster. I have no idea what will happen next. I hear my name here and there in the world but I don’t know, we’ll see, I’m focusing on the Summer League first and we’ll see what happens next.
At the New Zealand Breaks, he was a teammate ofOusmane Diengon his side chosen in 11th position by OKC.
“I’m very happy for him, he’s going to be great this season, I can’t wait to see some good games with the Thunder. »
