HoopsHype Dave Babcock rumors


May 10, 2014 Updates

Babcock said Bucks staff members have seen the top prospects — Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, Embiid, Julius Randle and a few more — at least 15 to 20 times in person. "Except for (Dante) Exum," Babcock said of the Australian point guard. "He's the only one. He's been very limited. I saw him last summer for a week; he was at the (Nike) Hoop Summit game (last year) and there was a summer thing two years ago I saw him." Exum played in the FIBA Under-19 World Championship in Prague last summer and the Australians finished fourth. The U.S. team led by Smart and Aaron Gordon won the title. Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

While Jeff Weltman is still the Bucks assistant general manager, he is expected to take on a similar job for the Toronto Raptors this summer, perhaps as soon as the beginning of next month. Dave Babcock, a long-time Bucks official who is the team’s scouting director, would appear to be a serious candidate to replace Weltman. Racine Journal-Times
