MILWAUKEE -

The daily parade of guard candidates working out for the Milwaukee Bucks is indicative of their draft focus following the departure of leading scorer Monta Ellis, who opted out of the final year of his contract to become a free agent.

The Bucks have the 15th and 43rd picks in Thursday's draft and a new head coach in Larry Drew.

They are looking to the deep backcourt pool to fill the void at shooting guard left by Ellis, who averaged 19.2 points and was the only player to start all 82 regular-season games.

Among the shooting guards who have worked out for the Bucks are Kentavious Caldwell-Pope of Georgia, Tim Hardaway Jr. of Michigan and Glen Rice Jr., who helped Rio Grande Valley to the NBA D-League championship.
