Milwaukee Bucks Team Overview

2010-11 record: 35-47

Third place, Central Division

Did not make the playoffs

DRAFT PICKS:

Round: 1

Round: 2

#40 : Jon Leuer

Areas Of Strength:
Milwaukee is strong where it said to matter most: In the middle and at the point, with Andrew Bogut and Brandon Jennings locked and loaded. Defense is not the problem for the Bucks, with coach Scott Skiles grabbing and holding their attention at that end. Mbah a Moute is especially helpful there with his ability to guard three or four spots.

Needs Work:
One of the Bucks' most glaring deficiencies was the lack of an alpha dog in the locker room and on the court. The two guys who ought to fill that role, Bogut and Jennings, don't have the personalities for it, either yet or ever. That's an issue because the other starters and rotation guys (John Salmons, Corey Maggette, Drew Gooden, Carlos Delfino, Ersan Ilyasova) are go-along, get-along types. Oh, and Milwaukee needs scoring.

Two Stats That Matter:
277 --
Games lost to injuries by various Bucks players. Coach Scott Skiles was still pining in March for just one practice with a healthy roster.

62 -- Times Milwaukee held its opponents below 100 points, second-most such performances in the NBA. The Bucks held the other team below 90 points on 30 occasions.

The Way To Go:
The Bucks need more offensive punch from their off-guard and forward positions. One player penciled in for them in a lot of early mock drafts is Alec Burks, a 6-foot-6 scoring guard from Colorado. Another name tossed out has been Tristan Thompson, a lanky forward from Texas.
