As teams continue to host players for workouts in the days leading up to the draft, the Bucks are having trouble getting all the prospects they want to see to come to Milwaukee, writes Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times. Although the Bucks have worked out a handful of big men that interest them, they haven't been able to host Austin Rivers, Terrence Ross, Dion Waiters, Jeremy Lamb, Damian Lillard, and Jared Sullinger. Woelfel suggests some of these players are confident they'll be drafted by the time Milwaukee picks at No. 12, while others, particularly the guards, don't view the Bucks as a good fit based on the team's current roster.
Here are a few more notes from Woelfel's piece, including additional items on Lamb and Ross….
- Some NBA officials believe the Raptors are leaning toward selecting Lamb at No. 8.
- Woelfel compares Ross' quite ascent up draft boards to Paul George's climb in 2010 — George ended up being selected 10th overall.
- Larry Bird missed Evan Fournier's first workout for the Pacers, so the team would like to host Fournier once more to give the Pacers president a chance to see him.
- Sixers senior VP of basketball operations Tony DiLeo is receiving "keen consideration" from the Clippers for their GM opening.
