After being a member of the Milwaukee Bucks since 2014, where he arrived from the Nets together with coach Jason Kidd (photo) Sean Sweeney is leaving for the Detroit Pistons. According to sources close to the negotiations, Sweeney has a multiyear deal with Detroit in order to become a member of newly hired coach Dwane Casey’s staff.
Considering his team’s needs, Horst believes the glut of guards and wings in the middle of the first round could actually work in the Bucks’ favor. “I think it does actually feel like a good fit,” Horst said. “We’re really happy with the group at 17. Our group, we feel strongly that we’re going to get a good player there. There’s a lot of interest in the 17th pick, so we’ll explore ideas of moving up, explore ideas of moving down, potentially even moving out of the draft. But at the end of the day if we sit at the 17th pick, we feel really good about the group of guys we’ll be able to draft from.”
