It was easy to miss in the midst of our flurry of draft updates on Wednesday, but Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times weighed in yesterday to discuss the Bucks' options with the 12th overall pick. According to Woelfel, Milwaukee has zeroed in on a short list of prospects, mostly big men, for pick No. 12 — Meyers Leonard, Tyler Zeller, John Henson, Perry Jones III, and Terrence Ross are among the team's targets.
Woelfel also shared a few more tidbits from around the NBA in his column, so let's dive in….
- Two NBA officials have told Woelfel that Dion Waiters' draft-day promise is from the Suns at No. 13.
- Although the rumors linking him to the Knicks and Magic have died down, Phil Jackson may still be open to returning to the NBA this season in a consulting role.
- The Bucks are "keeping the door open" on re-signing Kwame Brown, who came to Milwaukee in March's blockbuster Monta Ellis/Andrew Bogut trade to make the salaries work.
- Woelfel has heard that Scott Brooks re-signing to coach the Thunder is "far from a slam dunk." I doubt the Thunder would want to part ways with the coach that brought them to the Finals, so if Brooks walks, I'd guess it would mean the two sides disagreed on contract details. I'd be surprised if that happened though.
- Anthony Davis has yet to decide on an agent. According to Woelfel, the consensus No. 1 pick is deciding between the Wasserman Media Group, Creative Artists Agency and Bill Duffy’s BDA Sports.
