Bucks players had individual meetings with Drew on Monday morning, as reported by Gardner. The team has lost five of its last six games and 10 of its last 12.
Despite the front office's best efforts to field a competitive squad this year instead of tanking the season, Milwaukee is the only team yet to reach double-digit victories. The Bucks are 7-26 and have the league's worst offense, averaging just 99.1 points per 100 possessions, per Basketball-Reference. They will host the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday.
