Apr 7, 2014, 3:13 PM EDT

Last summer he signed a $44 million deal with the Bucks, and since then it’s been bar fights and fights with teammates. And now this. It’s about the worst year you could have after inking a new deal.

The Bobcats are a playoff team in the East at the moment, but that position is relatively tenuous. Every game counts toward that goal, obviously, so willingly sitting down one of your rotation players has to have happened for a good reason. We don’t yet know exactly what that reason is, but we do know…

Is there tanking going on in the NBA this season? Depends on how you want to define taking. However even if you define it broadly it’s not as bad as many seem to think it is. New NBA commissioner Adam Silver defines it more narrowly and says there is no tanking going on right now.…

Apparently Thomas Wolfe was right, you can’t go home again. It was a great story to see Caron Butler going home to Wisconsin (he was born in Racine) to play for the Bucks to end his career. Except the Bucks season has turned into an unmitigated disaster and at this point a veteran like Butler…

The rest of the Milwaukee Bucks’ season probably doesn’t matter. They’re 9-43 and have a five-game cushion for the NBA’s worst record. It would be a pretty big upset if they don’t land the best odds in the lottery. What matters now is developing their core. The three players most essential to Milwaukee’s future –…

This has just not been Larry Sanders’ year. The season after signing a four-year, $44 million extension he suffered torn ligaments in his thumb, something he suffered in a bar fight. He came back and argued with teammates, he never seemed to have the full trust of coach Larry Drew, although he has played better…

Last season Milwaukee’s Larry Sanders was a breakout player, his shot blocking and defensive presence in the paint was one of the reasons the Bucks were good enough to make the playoffs, plus he scored an efficient 9.5 points a game. That earned him a four-year, $44 million contract extension as the Bucks saw him…

BOSTON – Steven Adams arrived at Notre Dame Prep, as his first American coach put it, “with a guitar and a knapsack.” Ryan Hurd, who coaches the Massachusetts basketball powerhouse, knew his team needed a center, and the highly touted Adams certainly was one. Otherwise, Hurd didn’t know what to expect from Adams, a mid-year…

We’re at the midway point in the NBA season and the Indiana Pacers sit on top of the ProBasketballTalk NBA power rankings — we knew they’d be good but they have been better in the regular season than expected. Portland is second, and that is a surprise, but also a team on a win streak.…

In the second quarter of the Bucks’ loss to the Thunder on Saturday, Larry Sanders took himself out of the game. He delivered a couple of elbows above the neck to OKC’s Steven Adams, and the refs saw that activity and ruled it a flagrant foul. After video review, they determined it was a flagrant…

The Timberwolves lost a tough one at home to the Suns on Wednesday, which is nothing really to be ashamed of. Phoenix has been one of the league’s nicer surprises in the first half of the season, and now sits at seventh in the West with a 21-13 overall record. Minnesota has struggled, and the…

When Gary Neal got into it with Larry Sanders in the locker room after a blowout loss to the Suns on Saturday, it wasn’t hard to figure out which player the franchise would be siding with. Neal is a reserve who’s under contract for just one season beyond this one at $3.2 million, while Sanders…

The Warriors won their 10th in a row on Tuesday, besting a Bucks team that has won just seven times all season and is at the bottom of the league-wide standings. The games still need to be played, however, and Golden State allowed Milwaukee to hang around for a half or so before blowing them…
