Filling Out the Bucks Summer Roster
UPDATE: Chris Douglas-Roberts tweets to Frank Madden of Brewhoop he won’t be playing in summer league.
The dust has settled and the first stage of the off season is complete. With that, the Bucks summer league roster begins to take shape.
SG: Alando Tucker
Tucker was confirmed some time ago.
SF: Darington Hobson
The Bucks first pick of the second round should be in attendance.
PF: Tiny Gallon
The Bucks second pick of the second round should be in attendance.
PF: Larry Sanders
Summer league presents a great opportunity for first round picks like Sanders to make a good impression on coaching staffs and fan bases en route to a successful season. Sanders athleticism should do him well come mid-July.
PF: Darnell Jackson
Jackson has the leg up on every other member of the squad in terms of experience with the Bucks, but will have his hands full in vying for one of the final bench spots come training camp. A productive summer league stint would be helpful for him.
After those six, nothing is official at the moment yet for Milwaukee. I’d expect to see Trevon Hughes be added to the roster eventually, but that has yet to be confirmed. So who else might Milwaukee be looking to take along to Vegas? Here’s a list of players Milwaukee brought in for workouts that went undrafted and as of now, remain unsigned. This isn’t the complete list, but what I feel represents the more talented members of the group or players that have worked out twice (Ricky Franklin and Jerry Smith).
PF – Charles Garcia
C – A.J. Ogilvy
SF – Anthony Mason Jr.
SG – Aubrey Coleman
PG – Nic Wise
SG – Jerry Smith
SG – Ricky Franklin
Of that particular group, I’d say Smith, Garcia and Coleman probably are the most likely to at least get an invitation to try out for the team. Milwaukee may fill a couple slots with some journeymen looking to stick or players coming back over from Europe for the summer. More on this when updates become available.
