Milwaukee Bucks Getting Inside 2008-05-30
The Bucks currently have the eighth overall pick in the NBA draft.

Whether they'll still have that pick on June 26th -- the day of the draft -- remains to be seen.

Bucks general manager John Hammond said he hasn't had any "firm discussions" with other teams about the eighth pick, but expected some offers to eventually come his way.

In the meantime, Hammond said the Bucks will likely work out a spate of potential draft picks next week at their training facility in St. Francis.

Among the prospects the Bucks are likely to check out up close and personal are forwards Anthony Randolph of Louisiana State and Kevin Love of UCLA and guards Eric Gordon of Indiana and Russell Westbrook of UCLA.

There have been some whispers the Bucks have a keen interest in Love -- even though they already have two talented young forwards in Yi Jianlian and Charlie Villanueva. It is believed the Bucks are enamored with Love's all-around skills and his hard-nosed approach to the game.

SEASON HIGHLIGHT: Not many expected rookie point guard Ramon Sessions to play much this season, much less set a franchise single-game assist record. But Sessions, an unheralded second-round pick, recorded 24 assists against the Bulls on April 14. Sessions eclipsed a record that had stood since Oct. 31, 1968. That's when Guy Rodgers had 21 assists in the sixth game of the franchise's history. Sessions' 24 assists were also the most recorded in the NBA this season, surpassing Chris Paul's 21.

TURNING POINT: Heading into March, the Bucks were still in the hunt for an Eastern Conference playoff spot. The Bucks had won three of their previous four games and seemed poised for a playoff run. Instead, they lost to the Nets 120-106 and proceeded to lose nine of their next 10 games and 12 of their next 14.
