“You might target some players you might not get (in free agency),” Bucks director of scouting Billy McKinney said. “If you can fill that need in the draft, that’s also a positive thing. “Nothing is guaranteed until they agree to the deal and sign it. So we’re kind of juggling a lot of balls right now and preparing for free agency. “We have 16 players on our roster right now so we’re going to have to make some roster adjustments prior to the season starting.” Two of those players are Caron Butler and Shawne Williams, acquired from the Pistons in the Ilyasova deal but not in the Bucks’ plans. Both players have non-guaranteed contracts for next season.

Ersan Ilyasova was traded from Milwaukee to Detroit for Caron Butler and Shawne Williams. Ilyasova gives Detroit insurance at power forward in case Greg Monroe leaves in free agency. Monroe has been linked to the Knicks as one of their top free-agent targets. That Detroit traded for Ilyasova leads you to believe they aren’t very confident about retaining Monroe.
