Bucks make biggest move in trade, not draft
The Bucks understand Jackson may be reluctant to move again _ his seventh team of his career and third move in the last five seasons, but expect him to play a vital leadership role in a team looking to get back to the playoffs after an unexpected 35-47 season.
Milwaukee still has a need down low to help former No. 1 pick Andrew Bogut. The Bucks hope power forward Drew Gooden will be healthy again after missing half of last season with plantar fasciitis.
After that, Milwaukee has a group of undersized forwards that includes Ersan Ilyasova, Jon Brockman, Carlos Delfino and Larry Sanders. The Bucks also made a qualifying offer to defensive specialist Luc Richard Mbah a Moute to give them the option to match any contract offers the third-year player might receive.
For the third straight year, the Bucks made a big splash before the draft.
In 2008, general manager John Hammond dealt Yi Jianlian and Bobby Simmons for Richard Jefferson. In 2009, Jefferson departed for Bruce Bowen, Kurt Thomas and Amir Johnson. Last year, Hammond traded Dan Gadzuric and Charlie Bell for Corey Maggette.
Now Maggette is gone, too, after being hurt early and failing to find consistent minutes or a role in Milwaukee, in an exchange of contracts for Jackson, an explosive scorer with a volatile personality.
