NBA Draft Rumors: Bucks Could Trade No. 10 Pick To Rockets

If Lithuanian center Jonas Valanciunas isn't available at No. 10 in Thursday's 2011 NBA Draft, the Milwaukee Bucks plan to trade that pick to the Houston Rockets for No. 14 and No. 23 picks, reports Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress. It's unclear who Milwaukee would be targeting at either spot, though power forward and shooting guard are seen as position of need.

It's similarly unclear who Houston would want at No. 10, or whether that pick would be a part of a package to further move up, perhaps to the Minnesota Timberwolves' very available No. 2 pick. The Rockets have been rumored to be very active in the run-up to Thursday's draft, and reports suggest everyone on Houston's roster is available in the right package.

Popular names around the No. 10 pick include Colorado shooting guard Alec Burks, Congolese forward Bismack Biyombo, Washington State wing Klay Thompson and Kansas forward Marcus Morris.
