On the day before the 2012 NBA draft, the Bucks sent F Jon Leuer, F/C John Brockman, G Shaun Livingston and the 12th pick to the Houston Rockets for the 14th pick and C Samuel Dalembert. This did not solidify the Bucks at the top of the centeral division, but it did make them better.
Dalembert immediately provides Milwaukee with a starting center. Is he Dwight Howard? No. But he's a big body who can rebound and block some shots...and he's much better than ANYTHING the Bucks have at the position. Now Drew Gooden can go back to the PF spot and Udoh/Sanders can be interchanged at the PF/C spots.
As for what they gave up?? They did what i hoped: They trimmed the fat.
Brockman: 12th guy on the bench & 6th pf? buh bye.
Livingston: backup point guard? buh bye.
Leuer: 2nd round pick...PF...buh bye. Yes, i know he's a Badger...but he's still Jon Leuer.
They traded 3 bench players for a legitimate starting Center. Do the math. This was a good trade, NOT a great trade. But the Bucks got better on wednsday.
Now...what will they do at #14? Like Bart Scott said..."CAN'T WAIT!!"
