Roster Shakeup; Bucks look to improve

Posted By SportsWisconsin On Dec 9 2011 @ 8:16 pm In Milwaukee Bucks,NBA | 1 Comment

Quick Review:

The lockout is over, and the Bucks hope the off-season moves pay off.

Their are some questions that concern me;

Will the Stephan Jackson addition pay off?

Will we bring back Luc Richard Mbah a Moute?

Is this the year Brandon Jennings becomes a All-Star?

Who can pick up the scoring load?

Can Herb Kohl figure out the Bradley Center mess?

There are alot of questions to be answered this season.

This off-season the Bucks acquired some good talent in Stephan Jackson, Beno Udrih, Shaun Livingston and recently signed Mike Dunleavy Jr.  As we received this talent Bucks GM Hammond got rid of contracts of John Salmons and Corey Maggette after those moves didnt pan out.

With a 66 game season, Milwaukee hopes to get out of the gates quick. With training camp now opened, Coach Scott Skiles said his team showed up in good shape and condition.

Recent News: -Bucks send Guard Keyon Dooling to Boston for a 2nd rounder.

- Bucks sign Mike Dunleavy Jr. to a 2 year deal around 7 million.

Notes: Ersan Ilyasova returned to camp, while speculation was he was staying overseas. Sidney Moncrief is now alongside Scott Skiles on the Bucks bench, as the former Bucks Guard was hired as a Assistant. Drew Gooden has lost weight and added muscle, looks to have a breakout season. Rookie Jon Leuer has returned from a short stint playing overseas during the lockout.

Bucks open their season December 26th vs Charlotte.
