New-look Bucks eager to get training camp started


ST. FRANCIS, Wis. (AP) -- The new-look Milwaukee Bucks are eager to get training camp started and getting to know each other a little better on the court.

Only four holdovers remain from the team that finished 38-44 last season and got swept by the Miami Heat in the first round of the playoffs.

Larry Drew is the new coach after coming over from Atlanta. Brandon Knight and O.J. Mayo are two of the newcomers in the backcourt, while Caron Butler has returned to his native Wisconsin to provide a veteran presence in the frontcourt.

Drew says he's laid out specific goals and expectations to individual players, though it's going to take a little time to get everybody on the same page, "You know when we play, we're going to play the right way, do things the right way. At the end of the day, we have left it all on the floor that's the most important thing," said Coach Drew.

Bucks open the season against the defending NBA Champion Miami Heat on October 8th.
