It only took a week for a former Wisconsin Badgers standout to find a new home in the NBA.
The Chicago Bulls announced on Thursday afternoon that they signed guard Bronson Koenig. The organization did not release terms of the new deal, though ESPN’s Jonathan Givony reported on Wednesday that Wisconsin’s all-time three-point leader would “sign an exhibit nine training camp contract.”
Last Thursday, the Milwaukee Bucks requested waivers on Koenig, who signed a two-way contract back in July and participated on their summer league team. He recorded 5.2 points and one rebound per game in Las Vegas.

Koenig, a La Crosse, Wis., native, stays within the Midwest for now and just a few hours from Madison. At Wisconsin, he played in 148 games (94 starts), making at least one three-pointer in 43 consecutive games, a school record. He is the all-time three-point king for the Badgers (270) and is 10th all-time in points (1,459).
