Default A few top international prospects for 2011 NBA Draft

Just two days after the Bucks' season finale against Oklahoma City on April 13, Hammond and assistant general manager Jeff Weltman flew to Europe. Hammond and Weltman spent more than a week there scouting some of the premier foreign players in the draft and, in particular, three prospects who are likely to be on their draft radar: center Jonas Valanciunas of Lithuania, power forward Donatas Montiejunas of Lithuania and combo forward Jan Vesely of the Czech Republic. The Bucks will have the 10th overall pick for the June 23 NBA draft, barring the slim possibility they could ascend into the top three after the upcoming Draft Lottery. Journal Times

Most NBA scouts regard Valanciunas as a top five selection, while Montiejunas and Vesely are expected to drafted in the range where the Bucks figure to be selecting. Vesley, Montiejunas and Valanciunas help comprise perhaps the best group of foreign players to ever enter the draft. Journal Times
