NBA Draft 2011: Milwaukee Bucks Looking to Trade 10th Pick?

Zach HerringCorrespondent IIJune 23, 2011

According to ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher, the Milwaukee Bucks are willing to trade their 10th pick. Corey Maggette is in the group of possible players that would be moved along with that pick.

Maggette was brought in to help the Bucks get a better playoff seed and improve the team. As you know, the Bucks didn’t even make the playoffs, and part of the blame can be put on Maggette as well as John Salmons.

Both players had very disappointing seasons, and could definitely be on their way out of Milwaukee. The Bucks would be wise to trade up in next year's draft or trade Maggette/Salmons for first round picks.

But my name is not John Hammond. I don’t make the decisions. Let’s hope, if the Bucks do trade up, that it will end successfully. If Milwaukee keeps their 10th pick, look for them to be drafting Alec Burks, Klay Thompson or the best player available.
