    1 - Quote to sum this whole process up:

      • "We really appreciate the effort of the players that have come out and worked out for us, especially the last week or so. The last couple days of the draft workouts have been the toughest. We've had players that have had seven workouts in eight days or they've been to six different places and physically, it's been very demanding, mentally it's been tough on these players and yet these guys came out today and played as if it was their second or third day out working out. So we appreciate all the guys that have come in. We still have a lot of work to do on the draft for tomorrow and determining who we're going to select at 15, but now we have three second round picks, 37, 44 and 47 so we've still got some work to do." - Bucks Director of Scouting Billy McKinney, following today's 12th and final pre-draft workout
