Filling Out the Bucks Summer Roster

| June 26, 2010

Category: Summer League, The Off Season


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.

Jeremy Schmidt writes the Milwaukee Bucks blog Bucksketball. He founded it in January of 2009 because he hated his job. It’s like basketball, but with Bucks instead of basket. I know ... I’m sorry. He might come off as a bit negative, but I'm really not so bad. He just wants the Bucks to succeed, so he points out areas where they are coming up short. Someone has got to do it and he's ornery and opinionated enough to take on that task. He isn't sure if this should be in third person or not.

    It propably won´t happen but they should get Tim Ohlbrecht for their summer league team. My man Ohlbrecht has real talent and is a hard worker. We all thought he could become our next Dirk which was hard on him but if he finds someone who trusts him he can be a very productive player. A hard nosed PF who can get rebounds and be a stretch 4 at the same time. Definitly worth a flyer in my oppinion.
