What Milwaukee should do in the offseason

The Milwaukee Bucks might not get their hands on either Greg Oden or Kevin Durant during this year's NBA Draft, but that's okay because they are already a young team on the rise. Really, the only thing they are lacking is a good point gurad, which is something they can get in their position in the draft at #6 overall. If Mike Conley doesn't go #3 to the Hawks or maybe the Trail Blazers if the two teams do a trade to reunite Oden with Conley, he could easily slip to the Bucks at #6. If that would be the case, the Bucks will undoubtedly select him. If he is not available I could see them trading for a point guard. The Bucks already have rising stars Michael Redd, Andrew Bogut, and Charlie Villanueva, and really the only reason why the Bucks missed the playoffs is because all three of them missed significant time due to injuries.

During the free agent signing period, the Bucks will make a strong push toward trying to get Chauncey Billups to wear purple and white next year with Milwaukee. It has also been rumored that Bogut could be on the trading market to add depth and a point guard. Bogut was the #1 overall pick in the 2005 NBA Draft and was selected over all-star quality point guards Deron Williams and Chris Paul. This combined with his youth still make him a very valuable player to include in a trade.
