Early today, you may have saw my post on the Bucks picking #12 and the history of that pick (if you didn’t, here it is).  Well, about 2-hours after the article posted (AS I PREDICTED AT THE END OF THE POST), the Bucks sent the #12 pick, Jon Leuer, Jon Brockman, and Shaun Livingston to Houston for Samuel Dalembert and the #14 pick.  I LOVE THE TRADE!  Dalembert will be the starting center for the Bucks and the three guys they sent to Houston were borderline making the roster next season.  Dalembert is a rebounder and a defender; pretty much what Milwaukee was looking at trying to draft.  And dropping 2-spots, not a big deal.  I talked with Bucks director of Scouting Bill McKinney today and here is what he said about dropping spots…Billy McKinney – dont lose too much by dropping to spots

So now, the Bucks pick 14th.  Not going as in-depth as I did last, but here are the past 14th overall picks in the draft…
