The Bucks have themselves a backup center.

Veteran center Joel Przybilla has agreed to terms with the Milwaukee Bucks for next season, his agent told Gery Woelfel of the Journal Times.

“We’re excited about this,” Bill Duffy, Przybilla’s agent, said in a telephone interview Monday night. “Joel had a great meeting last week with John Hammond, Scott Skiles and Jeff Weltman and they told him that he not only would bring great value on the court, but that he could help them with his leadership and stability.

“We think it’s a perfect fit.”

Samuel Dalembert will be the starting center for the Bucks, behind him is the young Ekpe Udoh and they can use Drew Gooden or Larry Sanders at the five if they want to go small. Which is to say, Przybilla is not going to get a lot of minutes (not that his legs could handle it) and mostly he is there in the Crash Davis mentor role.

Przybilla also had offers from Portland and Dallas.

    That is EXACTLY what the Bucks needed, another big. Sarcasm intended.

    Oh, but if the Lakers signed him, it would be a great signing, right? Sarcasm definitely intended. What a dumba$$ you are.

      No balls to directly reply to the person’s comment so they see’s it. What a coward you are.

    This guy has managed to play for some of the most boring teams ever. Twice in some cases.

    As a life-long Bucks fan, I’ll just say this … if it means I’ll never have to see Drew Gooden play center again and if it possibly means that Gooden is on his way out, you won’t hear me complain about getting Przybilla.

    I’m so excited, this is the missing piece. A seven footer that can pick n roll with Jennings, a 10+ rpg, 2+ bpg big that can be dominate in the post offensively. Sarcasm definitely intended

    phaden: The person it was directed at was the preceding commenter.

    Try to follow along. I know its not, See Dick run, see Jane run. But its not much more difficult.
