DRAFT PICKS: Round 1:#10 Round 2: #41
|8. Joe Alexander||6. Yi Jianlian||No Selection||1. Andrew Bogut|
|* Draft rights traded|
Depth and health ... and they are intertwined. Bogut has missed 65 games in the last three years and Redd has missed an astonishing 88. Without their two best players, the Bucks have had to go deep into their bench, which is full of decent role players but not with players who should be starting in the NBA on a regular basis. Because of his health issues and his large contract, it would be difficult to move Redd, and Bogut just signed an extension. The Bucks need to get well and fast. That, and they need bulk in the post, specifically at power forward.
Milwaukee faces big decisions this summer with free agents Charlie Villanueva and Ramon Sessions. Both players were key in keeping Milwaukee in the Playoffs race until the injury bug hit. Even with Redd, the Bucks were among the bottom half of the league in 3-point shooting and field goal percentage, which means Milwaukee could be in the market for another marksman or a dependable backup to Bogut.
