Bucks 2nd round picks
The Bucks have 3 2nd round picks in the 2014 draft. They have their own pick at 31, they get the Lakers pick at 36 (for some reason doesn't show it on this site), and they also have the 50th pick.
I think they could trade a few of these picks and move into the first round. However, it's such a deep draft, would it be worth trading into the first? If they traded into the first, how high do you think they could move up by dealing their picks at 31,36, and 50?
If by trade into the first round you mean 28, 29, or 30 they could probably make that happen, though I don't know that it is more beneficial to be picking at 28 rather than 31. I personally would rather have 31 and 36 than 28,29, or 30. You get potential first round talent without the financial guarantee.
That's sort of what I was thinking. Just wanted to see how much other people value early 2nds. If it only gets us to the 28-30 range, it doesn't make sense to move up. Bucks usually find great role players in the 2nd round too.
If I were a GM, I'd trade a late 1st (26-30) for those two early 2nd round picks.
The Heat pick at 26 and they love to trade out of the 1st round so they don't have any guaranteed money to dole out. If the Bucks like someone when the Heat pick, look for a draft night trade.
A team who wanted to save guaranteed money they might have to pay out would probably swap a 26 to 30 pick for 31st straight up as mentioned above Miami would seem a logical team. If John Hammond looked to package 31st and 36th he might get somewhere near to top 20.
A lot will depend on what sort of offers Hammond might get as I'd expect him to look to draft with 31st pick at least unless he got a very good offer. With the 31st pick or if they moved up, I wonder if they might consider Glenn Robinson III as his dad was a legend with the Bucks and he'd be a very popular choice but further down the draft there would be less pressure on him.
OKC would trade that dallas pick for those
