The Milwaukee Bucks are rebuilding around Larry Sanders.

Well, not completely, they plan on getting some guys to go around him (they are not full on “woeful for Wiggins” but they are lottery bound) but the shot blocking big man will be at their core.

We told you before the two sides reached a four-year, $44 million extension to Sanders’ rookie deal (he has one season left on that), with incentives that could take it to $48 million. Sanders signed the contract on Tuesday and sent the picture out on Instagram with this quote:

It’s official..can’t believe I’ve been granted this opportunity to represent Milwaukee for the next 5 years and hopefully the rest of my career. Words can not explain my gratitude for the @bucks organization and the faith in me as a leader and a worker..I won’t let you down Mil-town..see you in the BC!!! #letsgobucks#bucknation #buck4life

Good to see someone wanting to be a Buck for life. Besides Bango.

Sanders is a good defensive center who averaged 2.8 blocks, 9.8 points and 9.5 rebounds a game last season. A lot of people didn’t notice because he was on the Bucks, but this is a very good young center. This is a fair deal for both sides.

    In all seriousness, I wish he was on my team. Loved his game when I saw him play the Celtics.

    If only he would have stayed at VCU for another season… MAYBE we could have beat Butler in the Final 4. Ahh we’ll, Congrats on the new contract.

    He is a good young player. Needs to control his emotions a bit except maybe when he is smacking Monte Ellis down for phoning it in!!!

    look at how big his hands are. is it shocking he gets as many blocks as he does

      Blocks are about instincts and timing. Every center in the league has big hands. I hope he improves his offensive game because he can be a real threat as a player. I like his guy. Works hard and plays hard. Glad he got paid.

    Milwaukee should have kept Tobias Harris. With those two working hard night in and night out they would be able to compete.
