Storyline: Draft Workouts
As of today, the Milwaukee Bucks will have only one pick in the upcoming NBA draft. The Bucks currently possess a first-round pick – the 17th overall selection — but don’t have a second-round one. Of course, that could change by June 21 – the day of the day of the draft – especially considering how Bucks officials are seriously doing their homework on several projected second-round candidates, including Chimezie Metu and De’Anthony Melton.
The Bucks’ keen interest in Metu and Melton may be an indicator of their interest in acquiring a second-round pick via a trade or more likely through a cash purchase. The Bucks have done amazingly well with second-round picks over the years with Michael Redd, Luc Mbah a Moute and Ersan Ilyasova and, most recently, reigning Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon.
