Default Larry Drew, new coach of Bucks

Drew said he's not committed to a specific offensive style -- "I'm not a big fan of predictability. Offensively, I think that's very easy to defend." -- but Milwaukee's two young big men, Henson and Larry Sanders, will have big roles.

Sanders made huge strides in his third season, more than doubling his scoring average (9.8 points) and grabbing more rebounds (672) than he had in his first two years combined. Henson, a rookie, showed his potential with a monster game April 10 in Orlando, flirting with a triple-double with 25 rebounds, 17 points and seven blocks.

"This team has really good young talent. Young talent that I'm excited about developing," Drew said. "The big guys are going to be a big part of the future. Their development is going to be very important, but you can't teach height, you can't teach length."

As strong as Milwaukee's frontcourt is, its backcourt is just as unsettled.

Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings, who led the Bucks in scoring, are both question marks to return next season. Jennings is a restricted free agent while Ellis has until June 20 to exercise an $11 million player option.
