MILWAUKEE - The decision has apparently become a little easier for the Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA draft.   . New team co-owner Marc Lasry indicated Monday that it is down to either Dukes Jabari Parker or Kansas Andrew Wiggins when the Bucks make the second overall selection in the draft Thursday night. Foot surgery for centre prospect Joel Embiid last week seems to have knocked Wiggins teammate with the Jayhawks out of the Bucks plans. With new ownership taking over a franchise that had a league-worst 15-67 record, Milwaukee is looking for immediate help. "I think its hard to take Embiid," Lasry said Monday at a joint breakfast meeting of the regions Rotary Club and the Milwaukee Press Club. "I think hes a phenomenal individual, but with the injury and not knowing how severe or long it will take to recover, I think for us today were going to want somebody whos going to help us on Day One." New York investment firm executives Lasry and Wesley Edens bought the Bucks this spring for $550 million from former U.S. Sen. Herb Kohl. According to Lasry, Edens watched Wiggins work out recently. If they need a reference on Parker, the Bucks can just go across town to talk with new Marquette coach Steve Wojciechowski, who worked with Parker when he was a Blue Devils assistant. "A lot is going to be dependent on what Cleveland does," Lasry said. "But I would tell you right now its probably either going to be ... one of the other." This will be a pivotal pick for a franchise in transition. Lasry envisions building a championship-contending team within five years. At the same time, the new ownership group could also be seeking public financing to help build a new arena to replace the BMO Harris Bradley Center, though its unclear yet how much funding they might seek. The new owners have estimated that it could take $350-$400 million for a new arena. Lasry and Edens have committed $100 million, and Kohl has committed another $100 million. Lasry said Monday he hoped to find other people to help come up with the difference and would welcome public support. New potential minority investors in the Bucks could also be announced by July 15. Lasry said he hoped to add local partners. Lasry spoke of building a foundation of young players over the next two or three seasons that would help attract free agents. Among the more promising current young Bucks are guards Brandon Knight (17.9 points) and Giannis Antetokounmpo (6.8 points), and power forward John Henson (11.1 points, 7.1 rebounds). "Nobodys coming to Milwaukee if the team does what it did last year," said Lasry, who added that the payroll would increase. Lasry also said that the team would soon announce the hiring of a chief financial officer, and would be hiring a team president.   . Nine years later, he might have finally figured it out. He had only five rounds in the 60s in his previous eight trips.   . Pierre last November, only to watch St. Pierre leave the UFC octagon with his welterweight title belt and a split-decision victory.   . The Opening Day starter played 53 games this season hitting .192 with nine home runs and 25 RBI. Red Sox manager John Farrell has decided to start Jose Iglesias at third base as of late instead of Middlebrooks.MINNEAPOLIS - Injured Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera underwent surgery last week to remove a benign tumour from his back. With the diagnosis and subsequent procedure, from which relatively minimal recovery time is required, the club believes it has the answers to Cabreras lack of mobility in left field and to the pain and weakness he was experiencing in both legs. "I hope so," said general manager Alex Anthopoulos. "You can never, I guess you go with the training staff and the medical staff and they feel pretty confident its tough to play with something like that. I wonder how much it really bothered him when he was playing. We would have to force him to go get treatment on his legs. He didnt want to go in there." Through the season, Cabrera had complained of tightness in his hamstrings. He spent three weeks on the disabled list, starting in late June, with tendinitis in his left knee. Wanting to play, not given to making excuses, Cabrera didnt divulge the pain he was experiencing in his back until after he went on the disabled list for a second - and final - time this season. Then, tests found the tumour. The mass, a fair size lump located in the L1 lumbar vertebrae, had been growing for an indeterminate amount of time. What the medical community understands well, however, is that tumours dont stop growing. Its a good thing Cabrera spoke up; otherwise, the mass would eventually have wrapped itself around Cabreras spinal cord, causing all sorts of negative health effects and making removal complicated.  . Cabrera should be healed from the surgery within a couple of weeks and the Blue Jays expect him to report, in good health, to spring training in February. "I think it will make a world of difference," said Anthopoulos. "Even, again, the way he looked early in spring, I thought he swung the bat well and moved really well. It didnt make any sense for a guy who was playing centre field quite a bit to all of a sudden have the weakness in his legs that he was having." Cabrera, 29, had a slash line .279/.322/.360 with three home runs in 88 games. He signed a $16-million, two-year contract in the offseason, coming off a 50-game suspension for performance enhancing **** use as a member of the San Francisco Giants. The medical community doesnt link benign masses to steroid use. There have been malignancies linked to performance enhancing *****. Anthopoulos and manager John Gibbons both applauded Cabrera for attempting to play through his ailments. For now, in the early days of recovery, Cabrera rests. "When it first came up he was scared, like anybody would be," said Anthopoulos. "You dont know. But now, I think overall, knowing the fact hes going to recover and going to be fine … I think hes just relieved he knows he going to be fine."               ' ' '
