Jim Paschke reports from the Bucks training center where the Bucks had six more prospects in for a workout led by Baylor freshman Quincy Miller.
Two out of the top six players from the 2002 draft are still playing in the NBA. And both of them happen to play for the Bucks: Mike Dunleavy (#3) and Drew Gooden (#4). Meanwhile, Yao Ming (#1), Jay Williams (#2), Nickoloz Tskitishvili (#5), and Dajuan Wagner (#6) are no longer in the league, for widely varying reasons.
In contrast to the draft one season earlier, the 2003 draft counts four present-day stars among its top six picks: LeBron James (#1), Carmelo Anthony (#3), Chris Bosh (#4), and Dwyane Wade (#5).
