I'll play -
Hammond has to keep a good share of the nuclea of this team because of contracts , age , and athletic ability. (not in any particular order)
Redd - brings veteran play , and IMO clutch shooting. (AS far as I am concerned he can retire as a Buck - parralling play as Jonny Mac , Brian Winters)
The con is that Redd needs to maintain his board average as a big guard as well as Defense that is weak.
Bogut - has still upside , and looks to be a Brad Miller , Brad Dourety type player , that won't carry his team , but solid in the middle as well as a team player.
Con - Defense strong and weak side still needs tuning , but he is young.
His board work has improved dramatically from the past 2 years.
Yi - has an upside , range in jumper , boards , and defense , but what is more important this player has as Houston's center - willingness to do what ever it takes to help the team.
Con - he has a lot of development to occur and will take as most big men - 3 years to really show his oats.
IMO - he would be perfect trade bait to swing a deal and try to get Beasley.
I rate Beasley very high , not only for size , but how mentally he is strong as well as his man - child body. This dude will handle the NBA right away and could become a double double guy if he stays out of foul trouble.
He is a perfect fit to bogut , because he likes to stay low in the block area (driving layups across the lane - mid-range jumpers off wing, while Bogut really feel comfortable swinging from low post to free-throw line for picks , shots and passes.
The rest as I have stated before are all moveable if Hammond could lock up a scoring SF.
Charlie V , Charle Bell , Simmons, Gadz , would be good trade material.
SF I would like to see in a Bucks uni is Jefferson from the Nets.
He brings weak side help , boards , and scoring.
Which leaves us to the PG -
Skiles will be on Mo maybe worse than 'The General' was on Harris in Mavland.
I would not doubt Mo comes off the bench in due time , and the bigger PG Sessions runs the team as an assist guy.
