– The Milwaukee Bucks went through some major personnel change this offseason. During the summer time, Bucks GM John Hammond totally revamped the Bucks at the point guard position, bringing in a whole new set of guards. They added college standout Nate Wolters via the draft during the second round, reacquired former Milwaukee Buck guard Luke Ridnour in a three-team deal during the Free Agency period, and added young prospect and projected starter Brandon Knight to the fold after trading disgruntled guard Brandon Jennings to Division rival Detroit.
Milwaukee brings in two young point guards in Knight and Wolters, that can grow under the leadership of longtime point guard Luke Ridnour. Knight, who played both backcourt positions in Detroit, has received a bad rap for his high turnover average and his inability to see plays unfold, but Milwaukee is getting a guy who will put it all on the line to win, a ruthless worker, and all around great guy. Knight gets a new start in Milwaukee and hopefully he can resurrect his early career as a Buck.
