With Parker on mend, Bucks could add to frontcourt in draft

MILWAUKEE (AP) -

Milwaukee Bucks general manager John Hammond is busy getting ready for the NBA draft.

The Bucks have the 17th overall selection in the first round on Thursday. They're looking for a forward who can rebound and defend, as well as an outside shooter.

Much of the focus at the team's training facility has been on frontcourt prospects who have come in for workouts. UCLA's Kevon Looney, Louisville's Montrezl Harrell and Arkansas' Bobby Portis might interest Milwaukee in the first round.

The Bucks figure to get an extra boost in the fall with the return of forward Jabari Parker, too, from a left knee injury.

Hammond said Monday that he remains cautiously optimistic about Parker. He thinks Parker could come back bigger, better and stronger from the injury.
