Milwaukee Bucks Notes, Quotes 2008-05-28
--Kelvin Sampson, fired by Indiana University after NCAA violations were uncovered, was hired by the Bucks as an assistant coach.

--The Bucks got the eighth pick when the Draft Lottery was held May 20.

--Bucks coach Scott Skiles and Hammond will travel to China for the Summer Olympics. Skiles and Hammond said they wanted to show their support for the three Bucks who are expected to play in the Games: Yi Jianlian, who'll play for China, Andrew Bogut, who'll play for Australia, and Michael Redd, who is vying for a spot on the United States team.

--Since Hammond assumed the GM reins four weeks ago, he has fired 12 people in the Bucks' organization. They included head coach Larry Krystkowiak and four assistant coaches: Brian James, Tony Brown, Jim Todd and Jarinn Akana.

Hammond has also dismissed two trainers -- Andre Daniel and John Anderson -- along with some members of the video department and secretarial staff.

Hammond has hired Marc Boff as head athletic trainer. Boff had been assistant athletic trainer for the Bulls.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "During my time with Joe Dumars, we always said we're going to be decisive with our decisions and react quickly. We have always done that. We did that with coaches. We did that with roster issues. So coming here, I had that same sort of mentality. I identified Scott as the person and moved forward with him and came to an agreement. We are very pleased to be able to get him. If you wait and wait, the market changes. Could we have hired Scott Skiles today? Maybe you could. Maybe you couldn't. But I feel the way we approached it (the coaching search) was the right approach for us as an organization." -- Bucks general manager John Hammond, on why he moved quickly to hire Scott Skiles as coach instead of waiting for more candidates to arise.
