Bucks, Rockets Discussing Trade Involving Ersan Ilyasova?

Word out of Milwaukee is that the Bucks and Houston Rockets have been talking about making a deal, with Ersan Ilyasova possibly on his way out of town. From the Journal Times: “The teams have tossed around different trade scenarios with Bucks forward Ersan Ilyasova being prominently mentioned. While the Bucks like Ilyasova, they have a glut of power forwards: veteran Drew Gooden, whom the Bucks signed as a free agent last summer; Luc Mbah a Moute, who is the team’s best defensive player, and Larry Sanders, who they selected in the first round last summer. It’s hardly a secret the Bucks would be interested in Rockets forward Patrick Patterson, whom the Bucks were hoping to land in last summer’s draft. The Bucks could also have interest in Rockets forwards Chase Budinger and Jordan Hill, yet another player they liked in the 2009 draft. If the Rockets were successful in landing the Bucks’ pick, they may try to put together another trade package to move even further up in the draft.”

    Do teams really stay high on rookies they missed out on from previous drafts? or is this just a useful angle for sports writers to blow up when there isn’t any real meat to a story? It seems like after a year (or more) of actual NBA play, teams would be interested in a player because of what he had done in the A, not an outdated scouting report from his ncaa days.
