Milwaukee Bucks NBA Draft Prospect Watch: Nico Mannion

Perhaps one of the most well-known prospects this 2020 NBA Draft class, Nico Mannion has a story and rise that has become all too familiar in this social media age.

The son of NBA veteran shooting guard and former Bucks player, Pace Mannion, and Gaia, a former volleyball player in her own right, Nico has been in the limelight for the better part of the last decade as his flashy game naturally led him to become something of a social media phenomenon. The same goes for scholarship offers from all sorts of college powerhouses around the country even before attending Pinnacle High School in Phoenix.
