New owners bring uncertainty to Bucks coaches

MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WXOW)  The buzz surrounding the Bucks change of ownership is giving way to some uncertainty.
    Namely, will new owners Wesley Edens and Marc Lasry make wholesale changes.
That includes with general manager John Hammond and first year head coach Larry Drew, both of whom were absent during Wednesday's news conference.
    The Bucks finished their worst season ever.
    They were 15-67.
    Drew admitted there was a sense of relief to reaching end.
    But he's not sure if he'll be a part of the new era.
"As a coach, there's not a whole lot you can do.  Just stay focused on what the job is that you're asked.  This league is so personnel driven.  It's important from a personnel standpoint you hope to have the right pieces, the pieces that fit.  The new group has a job and I'm sure they'll come in and evaluate everybody.  We'll just have to see what happens," Drew said after Wednesday nights game.

"We're all about hiring the right people and having the right people in place.  We think there's a lot of terrific people in the organization.  We haven't really spent any time assessing the organization.  We're going to figure it out," said Edens.

Next up for the Bucks is the NBA Draft Lottery on May 20th.
