    Milwaukee Bucks

    I thought I would start a Milwaukee Bucks threads since they are my team. Bono has a couple but they all have her name in the title. Go figure. Mods merge them here if you want.

    Bucks hire Scott Skiles as new coach!

    I am very excited about him coming here. All that talent on our team and they went 26-56!

    Most Valuable Player:
    Center Andrew Bogut took a significant step toward justifying the Bucks making him the No. 1 overall selection in the 2005 NBA draft. After registering 12 double-doubles as a rookie and then 19 double-doubles last year, the 23-year-old Bogut finished with 38 double-doubles this season.


    Most Disappointing Player:
    After he signed a lucrative six-year, $51 million contract last summer, big things were expected from Mo Williams. But while the point guard averaged 17.2 points and 6.3 assists, he was a sieve on defense and did a poor job of getting his teammates involved in the offense. What’s more, Williams had issues with some teammates and coaches, including a heated exchange with assistant coach Tony Brown.


    Free Agent Focus:
    Every one of the Bucks’ regular starters—Mo Williams, Michael Redd, Desmond Mason, Yi Jianlian and Andrew Bogut—along with their top reserves—Charlie Villanueva, Desmond Mason and Charlie Bell—is under contract for next season. The only players who will become free agents—all unrestricted—on July 1 are Jake Voskuhl, Michael Ruffin and Royal Ivey. The Bucks have a team option on Awvee Storey.

    While Redd said the losing has worn on him, he said he’s still committed to playing for the Bucks and doesn’t want to be traded.


    THANK YOU MICHEAL!

    Re: Milwaukee Bucks

    Joe Alexander

    Strengths: Alexander has prototypical physical tools for an NBA small forward – size, frame, length and athleticism. He shows an excellent mid-range game and fantastic form on what appears to be his go-to move – a one-dribble crossover pull-up jumper from about 18 feet. He gets terrific separation off the ground to create space from his defender, which, coupled with his extremely high release point, will make his shot very hard to stop in one-on-one isolation situations. Alexander also excels in transition, using a freakishly explosive vertical leap as well as above-average foot speed in the open court. The forward is said to be a very high character player with an excellent work ethic and has played organized basketball for only 5 years.

    Weaknesses: Alexander still has considerable work to do on his ball-handling skills, shooting range, footwork, balance and overall technique if he's to reach his extremely high ceiling as a player. The ball seems to slow him down, and he looks a bit out of control with his dribble by the time he reaches the rim on his slashing moves. Some teams have questioned his all-around feel for the game in the half-court offense. There also are concerns from what we could see here about his lateral movement on the perimeter defensively against NBA-quality small forwards.

    Outlook: Considering his age and the fact that he has played for only a few years, Alexander has a very high ceiling as a player. It will be a year or two before he's ready to contribute heavy rotation minutes, but he could pay off big time for a team that's willing to wait. He's one of the high risers of this draft and might find himself in the late lottery when all is said and done.

    Mock Draft: Lucky in the lottery?

    Yes, this guy can play for Scott Skiles. The gritty Alexander impressed Skiles and general manager John Hammond, and he fills a desperate need at small forward. Alexander survived and thrived under Bob Huggins and had a blockbuster 34-point game against Connecticut in the Big East tournament.

    Bucks acquire Richard Jefferson from New Jersey for Bobby Simmons and Yi Jianlian

    Jefferson, 28, averaged a career-high 22.6 points (9th in the NBA) for New Jersey last season, marking the first time in his career that he finished in the top ten in scoring.
