2015 NBA Draft Open Thread: Follow along with the latest news and rumors with other Bucks fans

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

UPDATE: The Milwaukee Bucks have reportedly acquired point guard Greivis Vasquez from the Toronto Raptors in exchange for the Los Angeles Clippers' 2016 first-round pick and the 46th pick in this year's draft.

It's here! It's finally here! The 2015 NBA Draft has arrived and now the fun really begins. Use this thread to keep up on the draft and discuss everything that goes down with other Bucks fans. We'll try to keep it updated with every few picks and pass along any of the big news as it happens.

A few things before we begin:

Latest Mock Draft Updates

Sports Illustrated's Mock Draft 6.0 has the Milwaukee Bucks selecting Trey Lyles.

Trade rumors are everywhere in Milwaukee, but despite chatter that the Bucks have shopped Michael Carter-Williams and John Henson, two executives told me that Milwaukee has flat-out told teams neither is available. Lyles's stock is all over the board. It’s an NBA axiom: power forwards should be shot blockers or three-point shooters—or both. At this point, Lyles is neither. But he does have strong potential as a post player, a skill the Bucks are short on.

Chad Ford's last mock draft update at ESPN slots Bobby Portis in at #17.

Why they take him: Portis has great size, does everything well and plays with a terrific motor. He won't be a star, but the Bucks don't need him to be.

Why they pass: Rashad Vaughn could give them a shooter that they've been looking for if they are willing to be patient. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Montrezl Harrell provide a toughness that coach Jason Kidd really loves. The Bucks are among a number of teams trying to move up five to 10 spots in the draft. They have a future first from the Clippers to dangle as bait.
