According to EuroBasket.com, the Milwaukee Bucks’ 40th pick in the 2011 draft, former Wisconsin
forward Jon Leuer, has signed to play with Fraport Skyliners.

"Jon was one of the top talents in the NCAA and is a big player that can shoot and play the
post. He runs the fast break very well for his size and is smart with a high basketball IQ," said Skyliners head coach Muli Katzurin. (ESPN Insider)

The contract has an NBA-out clause, according to Jim Rutledge of ESPN Madison, who tweeted this on Thursday.

Leuer averaged 18.3 points and 7.2 rebounds this past season as a senior playing for Bo Ryan and the Wisconsin Badgers.

Leuer becomes the second rookie, according to ESPN NBA Overseas Tracker, to sign an overseas contract. The other player is Boston Celtics’ second-round pick E’Twaun Moore, who signed a one-year, $200,000 deal in Italy.
