Bucks Bucks' Hammond named NBA Executive of the Year

Bringing in John Salmon's... who would have thought? \

NEW YORK, April 24, 2010 -- Milwaukee Bucks General Manager John Hammond has been named the recipient of the 2009-10 NBA Executive of the Year award, the NBA announced today.

Milwaukee totaled 46 wins in 2009-10, a 12-game improvement from last season, and earned the franchise's first playoff berth since 2005-06.

Hammond's decision to select Brandon Jennings with the 10th overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft paid immediate dividends, as the guard earned a starting spot in training camp and went on to average 15.5 points during his rookie campaign.

Hammond tabbed Scott Skiles as Milwaukee's head coach when he took over, and Skiles' trademark commitment to defense has rubbed off. In two years, the Bucks have gone from allowing 103.9 ppg in 2007-08 (23rd) to 96.0 ppg in 2009-10 (seventh). Hammond drafted defensive-minded forward Luc Mbah a Moute (2008 Draft, 37th overall) and brought in veterans such as Carlos Delfino, John Salmons, Jerry Stackhouse and Kurt Thomas. This past summer, he also re-signed Ersan Ilyasova, who was originally drafted by the Bucks in 2005 and played one season for the team (2006-07) before returning to Europe for two seasons.

Hammond received 12 of a possible 30 votes from a panel of his fellow team executives throughout the NBA. Oklahoma City's Sam Presti finished second with nine votes and Cleveland's Danny Ferry finished third with two votes.

I'm really surprised it didn't go to one of either Danny Ferry or Mark Cuban. Not sure I agree with this one.

Hammond did a great job.

Not just picking Jennings.

But bringing in Skiles defintiely has to count for something if you ask me.

Nobody expected Bucks in the playoffs this year. They improved significantly.

Jennings can't get the ROY, Skyles missed the COY award. They had to recognize Bucks somehow so Hammond gets the NBA Executive of the Year award.

I'm not angry about the decision, he did have a great executive campaign.

However, Cuban turned the Mavs from a good team that wouldn't last in the playoffs for too long to a championship team. Moves like getting Marion, getting Caron and Haywood(Excellent move to go along with Dampier), and getting rid of Howard really made the difference.

I see them playing against probably the Lakers in WCF.

That's a smart selection. Why wouldn't they choose him? Everyone forgets that all most teams do to become contenders is to keep adding luxury tax salary. That doesn't make you a great executive anymore than being born rich makes you a great businessman. It makes you lucky. That's why I said that if Colangelo ever leaves, the Raps should get after this guy. Detroit wishes they kept Hammond and sent Joe Dumars to Milwaukee.
