Default Bucks the next new contender?

They have an amazing core with Jennings-Bogut and Jackson who all 3 are elite defenders at their position.

Bogut is a good post presence, gets alot of high percentage shots for his teammates.

Jackson is veteran leadership championship exerience, IMO most underrated player in the league today and always comes up big in big games.

Jennings if he can go a season uninjured is a top 10 PG in the league IMO, his 55 point game was not a fluke, and he plays PG old school style like it was supposed to be played.

Assuming they all stay healthy I foresee a high seed from the Bucks next season and legit shot to come out of the east.

I agree that this team will be on the up & up next season, which is about time imo just a couple of role players to consider/kick

Getting rid of Redd's contract gives them a lot of cap space whenever the season starts.

By the way, does anyone know how free agency would work if the season would start shortly?

Took a real step back last season which was a shame, through no fault of their own really due to injuries. Although I did read the odd story and comment about locker room drama and bitching.

If they can get their shit together and go on a run like they did in 2010, and stay healthy, they could be a similar threat in the East like the Grizzlies were in the West playoffs this past season. It's tough to see them as a contender with Miami, Boston, Orlando, Chicago, even New York maybe to try and overcome first. They have a pretty decent roster now, but it's just that, pretty decent.

Captain Jack is a seriously underrated acquisition though, and getting rid of Maggette is a good thing too. Surprised if they didn't make the playoffs.

If their veteran guys were willing to sacrifice like the guys on the Mavs did this season, they could go far.

Not sure if serious.
By old school PG you mean low percentage shooter?

I agree, but he's got some experience, right?

A healthy Bogut is easily better than Bosh and more valuable to most teams in the league. If anyone on the Bucks is underrated, Bogut is. 2nd best defender behind only Dwight, and the gap is not that big.

It might not be that big when Bogut is healthy, but he's NEVER healthy so it's pretty dang big...

Jennings needs to figure out how to get his shot without forcing it. I agree he is a good pg and understands how to play it, just has to figure out that fine line where you think your helping by scoring but shooting a low fg% is actually hurting. I also think this has to be the year where he shoots over 40% or its gonna be another disappointing season for the bucks

Bogut has really come around last 2-3 years. Smooth post moves and great post defender his potential has really been shown in a number of games.

Salmons helps every team he goes into and this should be no different. His knack for making big plays and veteran leadership will be a big factor in them making the playoffs (is there is a season)

I can see them making a run in the east just not this upcoming year
