Gaining a reputation for their trades surrounding the NBA draft, the Milwaukee Bucks made another deal Wednesday. Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski had the first among multiple reports that Milwaukee has dealt the No. 12 pick in Thursday's NBA draft, along with forwards Jon Brockman and Jon Leuer and guard Shaun Livingston, to Houston for the Rockets' No. 14 pick and center Samuel Dalembert. In desperate need of a big man, the Bucks seem to have filled that void by adding Dalembert a 6-11, 250-pound center who has averaged 8.0 points and 8.2 rebounds per game in his 10 seasons in the NBA. Last season, however, was one of Dalembert's least productive, as he averaged just 7.5 points and 4.6 rebounds in 65 games with Houston. He has one year left on the two-year deal he signed with the Rockets last offseason. For Dalembert and the two-pick difference, the Bucks will give up very little production. Leuer, averaged only 4.7 points and 2.6 rebounds per game in his rookie season. Brockman, who spent two years in Milwaukee, never averaged more than two points per game in a limited role. And Livingston, was primarily a combo guard in his lone season with the Bucks, averaging just 5.5 points. The trio of now-former Bucks amounted to just 2 million of guaranteed money on the salary cap next season. Dalembert has a team option for 6.7 million on his deal. Bucks general manager John Hammond said Monday that he didn't expect the Bucks to trade their pick, even mentioning he was hopeful" a trade wouldn't happen. But having left the door open for a trade if it was too intriguing to pass up, Hammond must have wanted to take the chance to fill the team's hole at center. Moving down just two picks, the Bucks will likely focus their attention on one of the athletic wings they worked out in the past week. Connecticut's Jeremy Lamb and Washington's Terrence Ross both interested the team, and both could be available at either No. 12 or No. 14. Follow Ryan Kartje on Twitter.
