The NBA Draft is tonight and the Milwaukee Bucks could be very busy. The Bucks have the 15th overall pick in the first round and 3 second round picks after acquiring the 44th pick in their trade with Golden State on Tuesday. The Bucks pick 37th, 44th, and 47th in the 2nd round.
GM John Hammond says that Milwaukee has lots of options for their 1st round pick. Hammond thinks the team will end up taking the best available player on the board when their turn to pick comes up. Director of Scouting Billy McKinney says that this draft is heavy with forwards, which is a need for the Bucks. McKinney doesn’t see the team moving up in the draft.
The Bucks added Corey Maggette in a trade with Golden State to solidify their small forward spot, but they have had numerous players at that position for pre-draft workouts.
