Milwaukee Bucks' GM happy to have the youth in place to help veterans

The Milwaukee Bucks are in a full-blown youth movement.

Choosing to build around a nucleus of Larry Sanders, John Henson and Ersan Ilyasova, general manager John Hammond has blown up his roster from a year ago. He has given new head coach Larry Drew a group of young and hungry faces for the upcoming season.

Brandon Knight, just 21, was acquired last week from Detroit in exchange for Brandon Jennings. The eighth overall pick in the 2011 draft, Knight averaged 13.1 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.9 assists in two seasons with the Pistons.
