The Milwaukee Bucks have the No. 2 overall pick in Thursday’s NBA Draft, but the team also holds three picks in the second round—No. 31, No. 36 and No. 48.

As the countdown to the draft continues, Dairyland Express will look at each of the Bucks’ picks, beginning today with some of the players who might be still on the board when they pick at No. 48 overall.

The Bucks acquired this pick from the Phoenix Suns last July as part of the three-team, sign-and-trade deal that sent J.J. Redick from Milwaukee to the Los Angeles Clippers, who sent a future second-round pick to the Bucks.

Phoenix originally acquired the pick on Feb. 21, 2013, as part of a deal that sent Sebastian Telfair to the Toronto Raptors in exchange for Hamed Haddadi and the pick.
