The Milwaukee Bucks have acquired the draft rights for Damir Markota from the San Antonio Spurs in exchange for the better of Milwaukee's two second round picks in the 2007 NBA Draft. The Bucks previously owned two second round picks for next year's draft, their own pick and a pick obtained from the Houston Rockets. Markota, selected 59th overall by the Spurs in this draft, averaged 8.3 points and 4.4 rebounds last season for Cibona Zagreb of the Adriatic League. The 20-year-old Markota is a native of Croatia and made his professional debut with Cibona during the 2001-02 season at the age of 16.
