Well define "core" for me please. By core players I thought we meant players that are either important to their team success now and/or will be important in the (near) future. Players that are worth keeping around.
I think the Bucks have already moved on from Ilyasova since he's become redundant, I don't think he's really a part of their present nor the future and just because he has a long contract doesn't make him part of their core... (f.e. Villanueva)
But that's just me nitpicking I guess.
I'm also curious why Mayo is not part of the Bucks core yet Knight is. And Webster? Meh...
