In all the confusion and excitement over Yi some other very important things probably got overlooked:
- With their 2nd round pick, 56th overall, the Bucks took Nevada's Ramon Sessions, a 6'4", 185 lb point guard who turned heads at the Orlando Pre-Draft Camp. Sessions averaged 12 ppg, 5 apg and 5 rpg his junior year at Nevada before declaring for the draft. While he lacks range on his jumper his scouting report pegs him as a good defender who knows how to run a team. He'll provide nice size at the backup PG position while also providing insurance should Mo or Charlie Bell not re-sign (or get injured). Check out his big hoop for Nevada against Creighton from this year's NCAA Tourney.
- Bobby Simmons, last seen dribbling lightly and shooting standstill jumpers at the Cousins Center, has begun running on a treadmill and the Bucks are hopeful he might even be able to play on the Bucks' Vegas summer league team. Having Simmons healthy for opening night would be a huge boost to the Bucks.
- Bucks.com has a full listing of Yi's stats in China. Probably the most disappointing thing is his shot-blocking, as he averaged only 1.8 bpg last season.
- What does China think of when they hear Milwaukee? Maybe it's not as bad as we think.
