  1. Moncrief to become assistant coach with Bucks

    Jul 27, 2011, 6:10 PM EDT

    Sidney Moncrief

    From Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski we get the news an interesting hire in Milwaukee: Sidney Moncrief, one of the Milwaukee Bucks’ legendary players, is finalizing an agreement to return to the franchise as an assistant coach, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. Moncrief will replace Kelvin Sampson on Scott Skiles’ coaching staff, and have significant responsibilities on…

  2. Ersan Ilyasova reportedly agrees to play in Turkey, may skip out on the Bucks

    The possibility of Deron Williams and the league’s top tier crossing the Atlantic to play their professional ball has all but consumed the day-to-day NBA chatter, but even the most solid bits of news on the subject come with a lack of permanence. Williams isn’t going to play in Turkey for the rest of his…

  3. Bogut says elbow doing “much, much better”

    Jul 21, 2011, 11:23 AM EDT

    andrew bogut

    Andrew Bogut’s elbow was not right last season, and it showed. He shot 1.4 fewer shots per game and made a lower percentage of them. Where it was really evident was the free throw line, where his shooting percentage dropped from 62.9 percent down to 44 percent. He went back under the knife after the…

  4. Video: Brandon Jennings off-the-backboard dunk

    Image (1) Jennings_celebrate-thumb-250x260-10187-thumb-250x260-10188.jpg for post 3511

    Brandon Jennings looks pretty healthy this sumer. Last week he dropped 51 points in a game at the Goodman League in Washington D.C. Monday he swing by the Melo Center in Baltimore (yes, Carmelo Anthony’s center for youth development in Baltimore) for a little run. And nobody plays any defense at these pro-am games, so…

  5. Brandon Jennings says “it’s time to become an all-star”

    Jul 18, 2011, 2:05 PM EDT

    jenningseuro

    Brandon Jennings has been good. After skipping college to go play professionally in Europe not everyone was convinced he could be a team leader over here, but he started out on fire and had an impressive rookie season. But injuries slowed him last season — he missed 19 games and was never quite right. He…

  6. Free agent Landry says he’d consider playing for Pacers, Bucks

    Jul 11, 2011, 9:15 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Five

    Carl Landry has options. He’s a solid forward, a guy a lot of teams could use off the bench to provide some solid offense, good defense, a few boards and maybe a midrange jumper or two. New Orleans wants to keep him, but he will have a number of suitors. And of course he has…

  7. Jackson says Bobcats shut him down to miss playoffs

    Jun 30, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Stephen Jackson, Mark Ayotte

    The Charlotte Bobcats finally made the playoffs for the first time ever in 2010 and there were grand plans to build on that in 2011. Not exactly how it went. Still, at the end of the season they had an outside chance to catch the Indiana Pacers, become the eight seed and be fodder for…

  8. New-look Bucks hoping to improve offensively

    Jun 28, 2011, 5:39 PM EDT

    Scott Skiles

    There’s no getting around it: the Bucks were a horrible offensive team last season. Milwaukee finished dead last in offensive efficiency, dead last in True Shooting and Effective Field Goal Percentage, dead last in plain old field goal percentage, and dead last in points per game. Unsurprisingly, the thing the Bucks are talking about right…

  9. The Bucks borrowed $55 million from the NBA… last year

    Jun 26, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Terry Stotts Press Conference

    The Milwaukee Bucks are a pretty good example of the market struggles facing smaller-market owners in the NBA. It’s not like owner Herb Kohl hasn’t hired good people. John Hammond and Scott Skiles are both very good at their respective positions. And it’s not like Kohl hasn’t spent money on players. From Michael Redd to…

  10. Report: Bobcats, Bucks, Kings complete three-way trade

    Jun 23, 2011, 4:40 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    The Milwaukee Bucks have been actively shopping their No. 10 pick for a while. The Kings have actively been shopping the No. 7 pick. They have found a partner with each other and the Charlotte Bobcats thrown in for a three way deal that will blow up every mock draft you’ve read. The sides have…

  11. The Kings have almost definitely traded their #7 pick, and may want Monta Ellis

    Jun 23, 2011, 4:18 PM EDT

    maloofs-kings

    The “most intriguing rumor/report award” of the day so far definitely goes to DraftExpress’ Jonathan Givony, who gave us this cryptic tidbit a little earlier:  Teams calling Sacramento about the #7 pick are being told it’s already been moved. Problem is, no one knows to who, or for which player. Okay, that’s kind of a…

  12. NBA Draft day morning rumor roundup

    Jun 23, 2011, 10:56 AM EDT

    George Hill, Tony Parker, Channing Frye

    The NBA has seen more rumors in the last 24 hours than the morning after a Charlie Sheen party. At least we didn’t wake up wondering where we were. We’ll be bringing you all the latest over the course of Thursday right up to the draft (and plenty of pick-by-pick draft coverage, too) but to…

  13. Wolves still shopping No. 2 pick, odd rumors abound

    Jun 20, 2011, 12:50 PM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    We know this much — Derrick Williams out of Arizona will be the No. 2 pick in this draft. (Don’t buy the lines that the Cavs might take him No. 1, it’s not happening.) What we don’t know — who will be drafting Williams. With the draft just four days away, Minnesota is working hard…

  14. Is Brandon Jennings on the block?

    May 22, 2011, 9:27 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks' Brandon Jennings waits to enter the game against Toronto Raptors in the first half of their NBA basketball game in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    Brandon Jennings looked like  franchise building block in his rookie season. He was a Rookie of the Year candidate, and showed flashes of brilliance amidst a barrage of poor shot selection.Even with that, though, you could see the Bucks building around him as his maturity removed the impulse for the pull-up three in transition. At…

  15. Owner’s commitment to Bucks good for Hammond, Skiles

    May 13, 2011, 6:13 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v New Orleans Hornets

    Herb Kohl is making changes. The United States Senator said he has decided not to seek re-election. But he remains committed to owning the Bucks, he told the Journal-Sentinel, and he is not looking for big changes there. “One thing, our coach (Scott Skiles) is as competitive as they come and so is our general…

  16. Bucks will have Carlos Delfino to kick around for another year

    Apr 26, 2011, 4:20 PM EDT

    Carlos Delfino

    In what was pretty much a no brainer of a move, the Bucks picked up the $3.5 million team option on Carlos Delfino for next season, according to the Journal-Sentinel. Delfino provided the Bucks with about what they should have expected — 11.5 points a night on an unimpressive 39 percent shooting. But he can…

  17. Who is the leader of the Bucks? That was part of the problem.

    Apr 17, 2011, 11:59 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks' Brandon Jennings waits to enter the game against Toronto Raptors in the first half of their NBA basketball game in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    The Bucks had a lot of problems this year. They started with injuries which pushed the team’s offense on a downward spiral that ended at a point where they couldn’t throw a pea in the ocean (to steal an old Chick Hearn line). The Bucks could defend, as all Scott Skiles teams do, but their…

  18. Andrew Bogut to have another elbow surgery, season over

    Apr 8, 2011, 12:39 PM EDT

    Image (1) bogut_injured-thumb-250x172-18540-thumb-250x172-18541.jpg for post 4093

    Andrew Bogut’s elbow just was never right this season. Which shouldn’t be a shock after the gruesome injury he suffered a year ago. The fact he pushed back to play 65 games through pain is a credit to his desire to be there for the team. But with him not right — and other players…

  19. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs get top seed, Heat slip back

    Apr 7, 2011, 8:51 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Miami Heat

    What you missed while barking at a police dog…. Bucks 90, Heat 85: No Dwyane Wade in this one due to his thigh bruise, and the Heat are now 3-2 when he sits. It didn’t help that Chris Bosh floated around the perimeter this game (except during the Heat’s one fourth quarter run, not so…

  20. Bucks claim “honors” as NBA’s most injured team. Congratulations!

    Apr 6, 2011, 4:19 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Milwaukee Bucks

    Yes, we know. Your team would have done so much better if it weren’t for the injuries. Just know that there is always some team that had it worse. Unless you’re a Milwaukee Bucks fan. Over at Basketball Prospectus, friend-of-the-site Kevin Pelton did the heavy lifting and compiled the lists of man games lost to…

  21. It’s now or never for Bucks playoff push

    Mar 25, 2011, 12:04 PM EDT

    Carlos Delfino

    Has any team been more disappointing this season than the Milwaukee Bucks? Injuries and their anemic offense — despite having Brandon Jennings, John Salmons and Andrew Bogut — have held them back. All the way back out of the playoffs. The Bucks are three games behind the Pacers with a dozen to play. And the…

  22. Video: Bucks’ Brockman knows how trick shots are done

    Mar 24, 2011, 5:01 PM EDT

    Jon Brockman

    Jon Brockman is more than just the best big man to come out of the University of Washington since Spencer Hawes. No, he is a well-rounded human being basketball player. Complete with a repertoire of trick shots and a catchphrase — “that’s how it’s done.” Pretty soon that will be sweeping the nation and we’ll…

  23. Redd hoping to return this weekend

    Mar 23, 2011, 4:57 PM EDT

    MRedd

    Milwaukee Bucks shooting guard Michael Redd, who has missed all of this season due to knee injuries and has only played in 51 games over the last three seasons, is hoping to return to game action this weekend after going through his “first practice in 14 months” on Tuesday (h/t: Milwaukee Journal Sentinel): He was…

  24. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Carmelo Anthony was better but the Knicks were not

    Mar 21, 2011, 2:29 AM EDT

    Chauncey Billups

    What you missed while thinking the Big East was overrated… Bucks 100, Knicks 95: Just when you thought things really could not get uglier for the Knick, we bring you the start to Sunday’s game. New York was dismal in the first quarter putting up just 9 points and shooting just 16 percent — the…

  25. Michael Redd likely to return to Bucks next week

    Mar 18, 2011, 6:46 PM EDT

    MRedd

    Michael Redd is close to a second comeback from a second devastating knee surgery and he could rejoin the Milwaukee Bucks next week. In January 2009 he tore the ACL and MCL in the left knee in a game. He rehabbed for nearly a year and returned the Bucks last season, played 18 games then…
