Milwaukee Bucks Bring in Six Players for First Day of Draft Workouts

The Bucks have six players in their draft workout today.  They break down into three groups:

Possible First-Round Selections (#10 Overall):

  • Marcus Morris – Kansas– Junior
    6’9” – 235 lbs – Forward

Possible Second-Round Selections (#40 Overall):

  • Trey Thompkins – Georgia – Junior
    6’10” – 245 lbs – Forward
  • Andrew Goudelock – College of Charleston – Senior
    6’2” – 200 lbs – Guard

Possible Free-Agent Signees:

  • Dwight Buycks – Marquette – Senior
    6’3” – 190 lbs – Guard
  • Anatoly Bose – Nicholls State – Senior
    6’6” – 200 lbs – Guard/Forward
  • Malcolm Delany – Virginia Tech – Senior
    6’3” – 170 lbs – Guard

The most intriguing of the six players is Goudelock.  He is the all-time career scorer at College of Charleston and earned AP All-America Honorable Mention, but most importantly, he has range — big-time range.   The Bucks could pick him at #40 even though most mock drafts have him going in the later parts of the second round.

However, in a weak draft, Goudelock’s shooting is the one clear elite, NBA-level talent among the six players trying out today.  Last week, Goudelock lit up the shooting drills with the top performance at the NBA draft combine.  (Yes, better than Jimmer.)  If the Bucks can get any body — and I literally mean “any body” rather than “anybody” — worthy of  taking an NBA roster spot in the 2nd round, then they will have gotten a steal.

Let’s end with video of the 28-foot three-pointer Goudelock reportedly hit to force overtime in a game against the University of North Carolina.  (C of C went on to win the game.)  I say “reportedly” because Goudelock is so far away from the rim that he’s not even in the camera shot.  It looks like one of those low-budget commercials where the someone takes a ridiculous shot and the ball “drops in” after disappearing from view.  This additional link isn’t as fun, but also shows some of that same audacious range.
