The Bucks scouting department is scrutinizing prospects for the June draft. After watching countless players during the collegiate season and traveling overseas to check out draft-eligible players, the Bucks are now getting up-close-and-personal looks in private workouts in Milwaukee. One took place Tuesday with team officials working out several intriguing prospects, including three who were highly touted prep players before attending their respective colleges.
Two of them were freshmen guards Quentin Grimes (pictured) and Devon Dotson of Kansas. Both were five star recruits coming out of high school and turned in solid freshmen seasons with the Jayhawks. Grimes, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard who was ranked as the eighth best prep player by Rivals, started 36 games for Kansas and averaged 8.4 points during the regular season before upping his average to 13.3 points in the Big 12 Championship tournament. As for Dotson, a 6-2 point guard who was ranked 18 by Rivals, he also started all 36 games last season and steadily improved to the point where he was selected to the Big 12 all-tournament team.

“I’m optimistic about our team,” added Ballmer. “I’m optimistic about our team success, and that optimism is a force multiplier. In many ways, the reason we did this is consistent with that optimism as a force multiplier approach.”
The Clippers owner also paid the town of Inglewood $66.2 million for the land where Intuit Dome will sit. The Clippers will get some of that back, though. Intuit, the software company that makes Turbo Tax, will pay the team more than $500 million for a 23-year naming rights slot. That deal only enhanced Ballmer’s optimism. “This stadium is about being optimistic about our team,” Ballmer said. “It’s about being optimistic about our fans. Get in the building, pump up, make energy,” Ballmer added, clapping his hands. “Your energy can feed our team to greater success.”
The Clippers estimate the Intuit Dome will generate roughly $260 million in annual economic activity for Inglewood, including over 7,000 full-time and part-time jobs. The Clippers also committed to a $100 million community benefits package. “It’s a big market,” Ballmer said. “There’s plenty of fans that can be fans of the Clippers and Lakers. But we want to tell you who we are. I think there are many folks in LA who identify with this notion of being the underdog, the person who strides. It’s almost two LA’s. It’s not all showtime and movie business. Our fans are grinders.”
