I would not be against it but it wouldnt be my first choice of what to do. I'd rather trade Mo before anyone else, but I'm open to getting rid of anyone other than Bogut, Yi, and Sessions.

I think Yi may be on his way out because he has not expressed any longterm committment to the Bucks and will look elsewhere after his first contract is expired

The Bucks should not have drafted Yi when it was reported multiple times he didnt want to play for the Bucks. Anyways whens the draft? I didnt follow the Bucks that much this season because they were awful again and really am not a huge NBA fan NCAA is better.

I think with the situation that the Bucks are in that he can afford to start right away and take his lumps by learning how to transition to the NBA.

Latest mock from ESPN:

http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/draft2...ckDraft-080602

I think we need to completely rebuild. Trade Redd, trade CV, and maybe trade Mo. I like Bogut but is he the guy that Hammond wants? Can Bogut be that presence in the low post?

Yi is set and we really need him to develop this year. Is Sessions going to run the show? We have so many questions its hard to say this is where we begin.

I'd like to draft DeAndre Jordan as our future center. Then we are set with Yi at the 4 and Jordan at the 5. We aren't stuck paying Bogut after the season either.

I'd love to get another lottery pick this year. IMO we need to dump Redd though in order to go anywhere.

Rumor out there that Golden State is very interested in Yi Jianlian and the Warriors are willing to move Brandan Wright. The rumored deal would swap the power forwards and the bucks would also receive the 14th pick. I like this idea.

I wanted to draft Wright last year, but with all the effort in signing Yi would it be worth trading him already? I like getting another pick but I'd much rather see Redd, Villy, or Mo traded before Yi at this point. Bogut is developing at the 5 and if Yi can develop more this year we'll be set at the 4.

Wright has a better chance of staying long term if he was to be a Buck where Yi has voiced his displeasure since Day One. I love yi, but I think moving him for Wright would probably be in the best interest of the long term success of the franchise. Plus the 14th pick can get us a very good player because this draft is deep.

Many believe it was his handlers which didn't want him to land in Milwaukee, not Yi himself. Yi has never said that he didn't want to play in Milwaukee.

The draft is hardly deep too and striking it big at #14 is far from a given. Just look at the past 14th overall picks:


Quote:
Eric Williams 1995 Boston Celtics
Predrag Stojakovic 1996 Sacramento Kings
Maurice Taylor 1997 Los Angeles Clippers
Troy Murphy 2001 Golden State Warriors
Fred Jones 2002 Indiana Pacers
Luke Ridnour 2003 Seattle SuperSonics
Kris Humphries 2004 Minnesota Utah Jazz
Rashad McCants 2005 Minnesota Timberwolves
Al Thornton 2006 Los Angeles Clippers
Yi showed flashes of potential and I think if we can get away from a Redd-focused team then others will start to flourish. Just look what happened when Redd doesn't play - we played more TEAM basketball.

I don't see any reason why we wouldn't do that trade if there's truth to it. Wright should have been our pick in the first place.

The draft is deep in comparison to the previous few classes....we have the capability of landing a player like JaVale McGee or Donte Greene at that pick and if those players would've stayed in school another year they'd be Top 10 picks next year.

I think Yi, although I agree alot of the problems came from his advisors, would prefer to play somewhere else where it would make him more marketable and a place that is more culturally diverse. Going to the Warriors would put him in a spot with a strong Chinese population and he could become more of a face in this league.

Eh, its the same as the past few years IMO. Its got its top 2 and then after that its up to team needs basially. I'd actually prefer to move up and nab one of the top 2 players. Thats how Milwaukee can get a "face" in the NBA. Right now we have nobody. Redd is good but isn't a superstar while Yi has made the Bucks more internationally known. Who cares what Yi or his handlers want in reguards to marketing him, this is our team and we should want them to make a name instead of trading off a potential All Star and losing his marketing ability. You can become a star no matter where you play, you just need to play to the level of being a star player.

The Finals got me thinking back to when we had Ray Allen and how badly George Karl ****** us over by forcing him out. Allen's my all time favorite NBA player and it still kills me how we shipped him to Seattle. 6 years after the trade he's still playing at a high level making the all star team each one of those years. That trade made no sense what so ever. Ray Allen for 30 games of Gary Payton and Desmond Mason, ugh.

I don't really have a point to this, just pisses me off still.
