The Milwaukee Bucks have a lot of new faces this season. And a lot of new size.
Star center Andrew Bogut is gone but the Bucks don't have to worry about their front line. Milwaukee now has six players who are at least 6-foot-10, including newcomers Samuel Dalembert and Joel Przybilla.
They will join star guard Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis, who joined the team in March.
Scott Skiles has had one winning season in the four years as coach of the Bucks, and he is eager to see how the new team works.
The Bucks open the season Nov. 2 at Boston.
