(WNFL)- General manager John Hammond says he cannot see the Milwaukee Bucks trading away the Number-two draft pick to get an established player. There's at least some talk that Cleveland -- which won its second straight NBA Draft Lottery on Tuesday night -- will trade away its Number-One pick to get an established free agent like Minnesota's Kevin Love, or perhaps to bring LeBron James back to his home-state Cavs. Hammond does not see the Bucks doing that. He says new owners Wesley Edens and Marc Lasry buy into the concept of building a fresh team through the draft. They look to add a solid young player with the second pick who could be a force with Milwaukee for years to come. Some of the biggest players in the June 26th draft skipped last week's N-B-A Combine. Andrew Wiggins of Kansas is expected to be part of a separate workout in Los Angeles tomorrow, put on by the same company as his agent. Hammond and his scouting team plan to be there. It's not known yet when -- or if -- the top candidates will make a private pre-draft audition in Milwaukee. Hammond says he's encouraged that none of the leading draft candidates have said they're not interested in joining the Bucks.
