CAREER STATS: Career stats: 9.7 PPG, 2.2 RPG, 1.1 APG, 42.4 FG%, 37.6 3PT FG%. COMMENT: Although Meeks didn't spend a full season with the Bucks, Milwaukee was able to find him in the second round of the 2009 draft. Meeks averaged 4.1 points over 41 games with the Bucks in his rookie season of 2009-10 before being traded to Philadelphia with Francisco Elson for Royal Ivey, Primoz Brezec and a second-round pick in February of 2010. He started 64 games for the 76ers the following year, averaging 10.5 points per game and shooting 39.7 percent from beyond the arc. Meeks just completed his finest NBA season, as he scored 15.7 per game and hit over 40 percent of his 3-point attempts for the Los Angeles Lakers.

Dan Gadzuric, 2002, 33rd overall, UCLA
CAREER STATS: 4.7 PPG, 4.4 RPG, 0.9 BPG, 50.0 FG% in 527 games. COMMENT: Milwaukee used its first second-round pick of the 2002 NBA Draft on Gadzuric, later picking Flip Murray and Chris Owens. Gadzuric ended up playing eight years in Milwaukee, parlaying a strong third season into a six-year, $36 million contract from the Bucks. He never replicated the 7.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game he averaged in the 2004-05 season and is remembered for not living up to the contract extension. Toss the contract out the window, and Gadzuric was a decent backup center who ended up playing close to 500 games in Milwaukee. The Bucks traded Gadzuric along with Charlie Bell for Corey Maggette and a second-round pick just prior to the draft in 2010.

Rafer Alston, 1998, 39th overall, Fresno State
CAREER STATS: 10.1 PPG, 2.8 RPG, 4.8 APG, 38.3 FG%, 35.4 3PT FG% in 671 games. COMMENT: Alston started his 11-year NBA career with three seasons in Milwaukee. His time with the Bucks wasn't very productive -- he averaged just 2.8 points over 114 games -- but Alston went on to establish himself as a starting guard in the league. He averaged over 10 points per game for six seasons with his best year coming in 2004-05 with Toronto where he posted averages of 14.2 points and 6.4 assists. Alston last played in 2012 when he spent time with the Los Angeles D-Fenders of the NBA's Developmental League. In addition to the Bucks, Alston played for the Raptors, Heat, Rockets, Magic and Nets.

Ramon Sessions, 2007, 56th overall, Nevada
CAREER STATS: 11.7 PPG, 3.0 RPG, 4.7 APG, 43.9 FG%, 31.1 3PT FG% in 467 games. COMMENT: Another player who turned out to have a much better career than Milwaukee's first round-pick in his draft year, Sessions has been very productive over seven years in the NBA. Sessions played his first two seasons with the Bucks before signing an offer sheet with Minnesota. Milwaukee opted to let him go, but Sessions returned to the organization in a trade this February after playing for the Timberwolves, Cavaliers, Lakers and Bobcats. Sessions averaged a career-best 15.8 points per game in 28 games with the Bucks at the end of the 2013-14 season.

Luc Mbah a Moute, 2008, 37th overall pick, UCLA
CAREER STATS: 6.3 PPG, 4.9 RPG, 0.8 SPG, 45.9 FG% in 399 games. COMMENT: Mbah a Moute ended up having a more memorable career with the Bucks than Milwaukee's first-round pick in 2008, as Joe Alexander spent just one year in the organization. In his five seasons with the Bucks, Mbah a Moute established himself as a good defensive player, often times taking on the challenge of defending the opponent's best player. Mbah a Moute's offensive game was never much of anything and various injuries have hampered his career. The Bucks traded him to Sacramento last July.

Ersan Ilyasova, 2005, 36th overall pick, Turkey
CAREER STATS: 10.6 PPG, 9.3 RPG, 1.7 APG, 44.3 FG%, 36.6 3PT FG% in 395 games. COMMENT: Drafted in the same year as No. 1 overall pick Andrew Bogut, Ilyasova spent his entire rookie season in the NBA's Developmental League. The then-19-year-old averaged 6.1 points per game in 66 games with the Bucks in the 2006-07 season, but Ilyasova opted to sign with the Spanish club FC Barcelona in June of 2007. He returned to the Bucks two seasons later and has been a fixture in the rotation ever since. Ilyasova averaged 13.0 points per game in 2011-12 and 13.2 in 2012-13, shooting over 46 percent from the field and over 44 percent on his 3-point attempts during those two seasons. An ankle injury resulted in a down year for Ilyasova in 2013-14, but he is under contract with the Bucks through the 2016-17 season.

Michael Redd, 2000, 43rd overall pick, Ohio State
CAREER STATS: 19.0 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 2.1 APG, 44.7 FG%, 38.0 3PT FG% in 629 games. COMMENT: The only second-round pick of the Bucks in the two-round era to make an All-Star Game, Redd averaged over 20 points per game in six of his 11 seasons in Milwaukee. He averaged 23.0 points per game in 2004-05, 25.4 in 2005-06 and a career-best 26.7 in 2006-07. Redd's career was cut short by multiple knee injuries, as he first tore his left ACL and MCL in January of 2009. He returned the following season but re-tore both ligaments almost a year after suffering the first injury. Redd retired following spending the 2011-12 season with the Phoenix Suns, averaging 8.2 points per game. In addition to making the 2004 All-Star Game, Redd won an Olympic gold medal with the United States national team in 2008.
