Bucks make no guarantees to draft prospectsPosted by Inside Hoops
There are no guarantees for draft prospects auditioning with the Milwaukee Bucks.
Bucks director of scouting Billy McKinney said Wednesday it’s not a tactic the team has used.
Some NBA teams do offer guarantees to players that they will be picked at a certain position in the draft. The thinking behind that is to prevent a player from working out for other teams before the draft, while also providing the player and his agent certainty of a draft floor.
But the negative side is a guarantee can severely limit a team’s flexibility on draft night.
“We haven’t done it,” McKinney said. “In fact, a couple years ago when Larry Sanders came in and worked out, somebody thought we had given Larry a guarantee.
“I talked about it after the workout that we hadn’t guaranteed Larry, and we didn’t guarantee Brandon (Jennings), either.”
