Report: Bucks haven't closed the door on trading first round pick
The Milwaukee Bucks have reportedly traded Ersan Ilyasova to the Detroit Pistons for Caron Butler and Shawne Williams, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.
That might not be the only trade the Bucks make this offseason, however.
With more playing time opened up at power forward and with the draft right around the corner, the Bucks could move their No. 17 pick in the right deal.
Here's Steve Kyler at BasketballInsiders.com with more:
"The Bucks have not closed the door on a trade involving their pick, according to sources, and there is a sense that if the right player becomes available a few spots above where the Bucks are picking, they wouldn’t be opposed to making a deal to move up.
Sources close to the process believe the Bucks can find a player that fits with their existing draft position, however that has not stopped Milwaukee from exploring. UCLA big man Kevon Looney, Arkansas forward Bobby Portis and Georgia State shooter R.J. Hunter have been labeled serious targets as have point guards like Jerian Grant and Cameron Payne."
