Yi it is! Although I would have liked Brandon Wright, Yi will give the Bucks some international attention and a player who can come an and play right away.

Terrible pick...with this pick we get a guy that doesn't want to be in Milwaukee, a guy that needs to get A LOT stronger before he can play in the post, a guy that can't defend or rebound which is what we need, a guy that will mess with chemistry with the pressures to play him when he won't be ready right away, a guy that averaged 1.3 blocks in a garbage league with no other legit big men, a guy that GM Harris was unable to watch personally, a guy that brings total BAGGAGE with the whole government officials thing, a guy that will likely opt out of a his rookie contract after we develop him into his prime so he can go help some other team...what a stupid stupid pick...the Bucks blow it again and take a step backwards somehow with the 6th overall pick...it really steams me when there were other prospects that would have helped instantly and been glad to do it...we had other BETTER options (Brewer, B. Wright, J. Wright, among others). I HATE this pick with a passion...the Bucks need to either trade Yi within the next couple days or keep him and sign Gerald Wallace to salvage the off season...Yi will be our own little Eli Manning...except worse because we might actually keep him!

Following the lottery Yi was the individual that I hoped the Bucks were going to take and they went ahead and did so. This was a terrific pick b/c Yi can step in and play right away. He does bring some baggage but he'll be an instant All-Star due to the 1.3 billion peopel in China and it will help the Bucks business side of basketball. I imagine Charlie V will be moved to the 3, and if we can hold on to Mo, the Bucks should be a playoff team in '07-'08.

rumor is that Yi's agent is going to ask for him to be traded today cause they are not happy with him being in milwaukee. so what could we get for Yi if we were to trade for him?? hypothetically

Yi Jianlian claims he will not be another Gary Sheffield or Javon Walker.

Though Yi's camp refused to let the Bucks watch Yi workout last week, Yi said in an interview Thursday night that he planned to play for the Bucks this season.

"I'm not really familiar with the city, but I'm happy to play with the team and I'm happy to play in the NBA," Yi said.

"I don't know much about the team...in China we didn't see a lot of games. I've never been therre, it's kind of a new city for me."

What else can Yi say? He has two options. He can play on a front line with Andrew Bogut and Charlie Villanueva next season, or he can go back and play in China.

While I'm sure the Guangdong Tigers would love to have him back, I'm guessing that the Bucks will be able to offer a slightly larger signing bonus.

He'll be a Buck and he'll like it.

i hope he plays because he reminds of a chinese version of Dirk. who we traded away. Lets just hope we do whatever it takes to keep him. but there still is a chance that he will ask for a trade. i just hope we dont follow though with it.

But you also have to remember that European players back then were unknowns. It looked like the right move at the time to trade Dirk.

I don't think we'll trade him. From what I read on JSonline and CBSsportsline is that Yi said he will play for the bucks and is happy to be in the NBA. All this talk of playing in a big market seems to be coming from his handlers.

I'm actually pretty excited for the season now and I'm glad that Conley was taken by Memphis. I didn't want him plus it should better our chances of Mo returning.

Pretty much everyone that needed a guard filled it in the draft. I'd rather keep Mo because he is younger and starting to enter his prime whereas Billups is getting older and is he a product of Detroits system?

I agree with that. Though I think Mo has to be priority number one. This has been a really frantic 2 days now with all this Yi talk. Trade rumors are flying left and right....

According to ESPN Yi has yet to report to Milwaukee and his camp is seeking a trade.

Its all assumptions about this trade talk IMO. Yi didn't come to Milwaukee because he's playing the Chinease basketball team.

Well this certainly is an interesting situation the Bucks have gotten themselves into. There are rumors that, if Yi absolutely refuses to give Milwaukee a chance, he may be traded to Golden State for Brandon Wright and several other players. We'll see......

I doubt we trade him. I hope that we don't. Larry Harris drafted him, now he better stick with him. He was well aware of the situation coming into the draft. If we need to play a little hardball to get him to come to Milwaukee, then do it. We have the power in this relationship. The only other option he has is to stay in China for ever.

I think it was dumb for Milwaukee to draft him in the first place. They knew he doesn't want to play there. It'd be like if San Diego drafted Eli and kept him.

If a player is drafted by a team he MUST go to that team. Players whining about where they want to go is B.S. Plus, it was a brilliant move by Larry Harris both from a team and economic standpoint so you can blame the guy for making the pick regardless of what the player felt.

This really sucks wtih all this B.S. thats surrounding him. From what I gather is that it seems like its his agents and the Chinease government trying to position him in a larger market. I honestly don't believe that its Yi's decision. Hopefully he remains a Buck but I'm getting tired off all this 'Yi doesn't want to be in Milwaukee' rants that are going on around the net/TV.

Yeah, I don't think it's really his call.. I think he just wants to play BBall and his agents are just worried about making him this ultra-superstar.
