    Milwaukee Bucks' Ersan Ilyasova   goes up for a shot against Toronto Raptors' Alan Anderson during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Milwaukee Wisconsin

    Last season: Abort the mission! New plan! New plan! The Bucks slammed on the parking brake, wrenched the wheel and Tokyo Drifted in a new direction last season, abandoning the “all defense all the time” team built around Andrew Bogut and giving p on the fleeting hope Bogut will ever, ever be healthy. They swapped…

  7. Report: Milwaukee in lead to sign Joel Przybilla

    Jul 30, 2012, 1:01 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Houston Rockets, Game 6

    It’s largely reached the “team are filling out the end of their roster” portion of the summer. So the big questions left (and we’re going to ignore that Dwight question now) are ones like “where will Joel Przybilla play next season?” And the answer may be Milwaukee. That according to a report in the Journal-Times.…

  8. Report: Blazers, Bucks, Mavericks going after Przybilla

    Mar 21, 2012, 4:55 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    UPDATE 4:55 pm: It is official, Ronny Turiaf is a member of the Miami Heat. Let the sideline cheering begin. The Heat had made runs at bigger name big men this season — Kenyon Martin when he returned from China, Joel Przybilla, others — but this gives them a little more depth up front. He…

  10. Step away from the Trail Blazers, people. It’s about to blow.

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Portland Trail Blazers

    On another website, in the fourth week of the season, I had the Trail Blazers as the fifth best team in the league in an edition of the power rankings. They looked  awesome. I use that word a lot, but in the Blazers’ case, it was true. They played some of the best ball by any…

  12. Blazers release Armon Johnson to clear roster spot for Joel Przybilla

    Feb 27, 2012, 1:30 PM EST

    Armon+Johnson+wGE12f1KeCIm

    The team on the cusp of contention with a full roster is typically a bad omen for some deep-reserve player or another; in their efforts to improve via trade or free agency, teams almost inevitably have to release players as a space-creating endeavor, getting nothing in return but the freedom to go about their transaction…

    Portland Trail Blazers v Houston Rockets, Game 6

    In the next 24-48 hours, one team is going to get a solid big man who can come off their bench and provide some size — Joel Przybilla is going to make his decision. The Bulls had been considered the front runners but the Heat also had been in negotiations with (and reportedly made an offer…

  16. Report: Heat make offers to Kenyon Martin, Joel Przybilla

    Feb 2, 2012, 1:00 AM EST

    Kenyon Martin

    The Heat certainly could use some help, some depth along the front line. No offense to Eddy Curry, but he turns out not to be the answer. So they have made offers to two free agents to be — Kenyon Martin and Joel Przybilla, reports Brian Windhorst at ESPN. The Heat have offered contracts to…

    Jan 29, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

    Cleveland Cavilers v Boston Celtics

    Leon Powe or Joel Przybilla could go from sitting on the sidelines of this NBA season to being in the mix for a championship in the next week. Here’s how. The first step was that the Bulls have released back up guard Mike James, bringing their roster down to 13. That move has pretty much…

    Sep 12, 2011, 10:35 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Houston Rockets, Game 6

    Milwaukee does not usually come up on top of a player’s list of desired free agent destinations. That despite the city’s fantastic array of bratwursts eateries. But Joel Przybilla is the exception — hw wants to come back and play there. Przybilla is a free agent looking to hook on somewhere next season as a…

    Portland Trail Blazers v Houston Rockets, Game 6

    Joel Przybilla was dished to Charlotte for Gerald Wallace in what was thought to be a cash dump. Seeing as how the Bobcats are going nowhere and just looking to finish out the year, get their draft picks and start over, Przybilla was high on the list of prospective buyout candidates. He’s a capable big…

    “Blow it up!” Smart fans in Charlotte have been begging for that for years. They saw what many did. A roster ballooned full with veterans too old to develop, of marginal talent and ability, meshed together with some poor draft picks in an untenable salary situation that kept trying to reinvent itself by giving away…
