Tuesday Bucks Notes

  • Chad Ford's latest mock draft has the Bucks taking Brandan Wright. He mentions they'd probably prefer Horford or Conley, but he has those two going 3-4 and Brewer going 5th.
  • Gery Woelfel speculates in his latest posting about a possible Warriors-Bucks trade, suggesting a package involving Jason Richardson and the 18th pick for the Bucks' 6th overall pick. Yi Jianlian's reps have made it pretty clear that his preferred destinations don't include Milwaukee, while there's mutual interest in bringing Yi to the Bay Area. However it's difficult to see how Richardson makes a lot of sense for the Bucks given he's a shooting guard making $12 million who doesn't play much defense. It'd certainly be possible to move either him or Redd to SF, but his value to the Bucks is still lower than it might be to other teams. The only obvious player the Bucks could use is Andris Biedrins, but it's unlikely the Warriors would want to part with their 21-year old big man. He's entering a contract year and the Warriors partly want to move Richardson so they can re-sign him.
  • Jonathan Givony offers his latest lottery insights at DX. He notes that the Bucks would prefer Horford but will be looking for Conley or Brandan Wright if they're available.
  • Matt Kamalsky posted an overview of the Bucks offseason situation at DraftExpress. Pretty decent synopsis, though the salary information doesn't provide any insight on our actual cap situation. I'll try to post more details about this soon.
  • The Bucks' free agent camp will be held from Wednesday to Friday. Former Bobcat Kareem Rush will be there, as will former Cal PF Rod Benson, who has the best player blog on the planet.

Thanks for doing a bucks blog. I'm still undecided if the Bucks should take Conley if he's available or gamble on resigning Mo Williams.
