Free agents:
G: Luke Ridnour (unrestricted)

G: Michael Redd (player option)
G: John Salmons (player option)
G-F: Jerry Stackhouse (unrestricted)
C: Primoz Brezec (unrestricted)
C: Kurt Thomas (unrestricted)

Areas of strength:
Extremely well-coached. Defensive toughness.

Needs work:
Shooting in short supply again if Salmons leaves (barring rebirth of Redd).

Two stats that matter:
-- Milwaukee's FT attempts, fewer than their opponents made (1,692).

12 -- The Bucks' increase in victories from 34 to 46 was most in East.

The Way to Go:
This team is set up to be a bigger free-agent factor in 2011. Need for offense is dire enough that Milwaukee could trade up in the draft for the right potential scorer/creator.
