The Bucks have acquired Sacramento Kings power forward Jon Brockman in a sign-and-trade for Darnell Jackson and a future second-round pick according to Adrian Wojnarowski. Milwaukee’s power forward situation gets no less complicated, as Brockman is better than Jackson, but not a significant upgrade over any of the remaining Bucks forwards. This likely leaves Tiny Gallon world’s away from immediate playing time next season, as the thing he does better than anything else is rebounding, Brockman’s greatest strength.

5. Tiny Gallon
And I haven’t even mentioned Luc Richard Mbah a Moute.
So where does that leave Milwaukee? With a team heavy on power forwards that can play some five and a lot of four, moderately deep at the two and three and as shallow as can be at the point guard position. Milwaukee still seems like they’ll need to add a pure point guard or a combo guard behind Brandon Jennings. Luther Head‘s name has been mentioned, but other fits may include Travis Diener, Anthony Johnson or Keyon Dooling. The influx of talent and youth at the four over the past month leads one to believe another move may be coming, but it’s hard to imagine the Bucks giving up on any of the young players they have at the power forward position solely to acquire a backup point guard.
If Milwaukee were to deal one of their assets at the four, I’d think they’d be more inclined to get someone who can put in minutes at the one and the two in return. Preferably a player who can defend both point guards and shooting guards and shoot the three.
The addition of Brockman still seems like it is the collecting of an asset, as Brockman was an intriguing rebounder and hustle player last season.
