Bucks press on with draft prep with sale pending

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (AP) -

The Milwaukee Bucks are moving on with the business of getting ready for the draft while waiting for the NBA to weigh in on the team's pending sale.

A league-worst 15-67 record earned Milwaukee the best odds for securing the top pick in the draft lottery. The team began working out less-heralded prospects Friday, including former Wisconsin guard Ben Brust and former Marquette guard Jake Thomas.

Each player realizes that getting drafted is a long shot at best. They're hoping the workouts serve as a springboard for a chance to play in the developmental league or overseas.

As for the team itself, the NBA has yet to weigh in officially on the $550 million sale of the team from Herb Kohl to investment firm executives Marc Lasry and Wesley Edens.
