Ram Nation has reached out to Lewis but has yet to receive comment, although Lewis seems to have confirmed the news via a retweet this morning. Lewis worked out for the Bucks in pre-draft workouts last month before working out with a number of other teams.
Lewis was an 2017 Atlantic 10 First Team selection his senior season after averaging a career-high 15.2 points to go with 4.5 assists and 1.7 steals per contest. He posted a career-best 20.9 player efficiency rating in his starring role for the Rams and finished his career with an impressive 56.1% career true shooting percentage to go with a solid 27.7% assist rate.
The Dickson, TN native put together one of the most memorable seasons from a VCU guard, coming up with a slew of big plays including clutch moments in the two 0.4-second wins against St. Bonaventure and George Washington and his late made three to spoil a Richmond Spiders A-10 tourney upset attempt. He finished his career with a gutsy 30-point performance in VCU’s NCAA tournament loss to St. Mary’s.
UPDATE: Lewis tells VCURamNation.com he signed as an undrafted free agent with the Bucks last night. Will play for the team in Vegas Summer League and has an invite to training camp. Bucks will then have the option to keep him on NBA roster to send him to D-League affiliate Milwaukee Herd.
