The Milwaukee Bucks are already going to work, and the NBA Draft hasn't even started yet. They've made deals with the Golden State Warriors and New Jersey Nets—landing Corey Maggette and Chris Douglas-Roberts—while only giving up Dan Gadzuric, Charlie Bell and a second-round pick.

Some would say the Bucks just lost some depth. Some would say they just lightened their financial load. Most would say it's about friggin' time.

Milwaukee still has some work to do with its 15th pick in the first round of tonight's draft, and they could still be a marginal player in free agency this summer.

Here's a breakdown of what their starting lineup should look like if everything goes according to plan:

PG: Brandon Jennings

SG: Xavier Henry

SF: Corey Maggette

PF: David Lee

C: Andrew Bogut

Sixth Man: Chris Douglas-Roberts

Milwaukee has a realistic shot at nabbing Henry, an athletic shooter from Kansas with a solid offensive game. With the likely departure of Michael Redd, Henry would only have to fend off Chris Douglas-Roberts to start from day one as a rookie.

Another interesting situation might be point guard, where wily veteran Luke Ridnour will almost certainly be too expensive to keep.

Regardless, the next big move will be making sure their post game never falters again because of injury, as Bucks' GM John Hammond brings in unrestricted free agent David Lee.

Scott Skiles will be able to work with Lee and improve his defense, while his offensive game and rebounding skills are already at an All-Star level.

If Bogut and newly acquired Corey Maggette can stay healthy, the Bucks will suddenly have a legitimately elite lineup, and will be near locks to reach the NBA Playoffs for the second consecutive season.
