The Milwaukee Bucks addressed a dire need to boost free throw chances and scoring off the dribble with the acquisition of small forward Corey Maggette and shooting guard Chris Douglas-Roberts, and it was only fitting that the Bucks centered their 2010 NBA Draft on size, athleticism and length.

After taking VCU power forward Larry Sanders 15th overall in the first round, Milwaukee added a poor man’s version of Evan Turner and a quasi-clone of Glen “Big Baby” Davis.

“We went with size tonight, and thought some skilled big buys would look good in a Bucks uniform,” coach Scott Skiles said. “When you look at the two teams in the finals, they have tremendous length around the basket. … We’re not long enough, so trying to get longer and more skilled up front is a priority for us.”
