2012 NBA Mock Draft: Bucks Get Meyers Leonard In Sam Amick's Latest

One day before the draft, Illinois center Meyers Leonard goes to the Milwaukee Bucks with the No. 12 overall pick in the latest mock draft from Sam Amick of SI.com. The Bucks are a team that could badly use some size, and it appears that they'll be targeting big men in Thursday's draft:

The Bucks are expected to fill the void left by center Andrew Bogut after he was traded to Golden State last season, but they could go any number of ways. The athletic and fast-improving Leonard has shot up most teams' boards in recent weeks, including consideration from Detroit at No. 9. Milwaukee is known to be high on Terrence Jones and [John] Henson as well.

Beyond Detroit, Amick also writes that the Portland Trail Blazers are considering Leonard with the No. 11 pick. At this point, it's possible that Milwaukee is the floor for where Leonard goes in the draft, depending on where other big men like Jones and Henson go.
