Milwaukee Bucks

  1. Corey Maggette may miss entire preseason

    Sep 28, 2010, 8:30 AM EDT

    While everyone was looking at Andrew Boguts’ elbow, another Bucks injury slipped under the radar. Corey Maggette, who is counted on to be the scoring punch off the bench for Milwaukee (if not the starting small forward) underwent ankle surgery in July and may miss the entire preseason recovering, according to the Journal Times. “I…

  2. Erick Dampier says it's down to four teams, Portland now in mix

    Sep 27, 2010, 9:59 AM EDT

    Erick Dampier made a decision, he wanted to take his backup center talents to South Beach, like everyone else. But for reasons not totally clear, Miami didn’t want him (Damps is not a great center, but he’s better than anyone they’ve got). So he’s taking his time making another decision. He told Sam Amick of…

  3. Toronto is the new, slightly gimpy horse in the race for Erick Dampier's services

    Sep 27, 2010, 8:30 AM EDT

    A union between Erick Dampier and the Miami Heat apparently made too much sense to come to fruition. Now, rather than the serviceable big man going to the championship contending team a bit lacking in serviceable big men, Dampier will likely land with another playoff-caliber squad. Or maybe the Toronto Raptors. According to Adrian Wojnarowski…

  4. NBA Season Preview: The Milwaukee Bucks

    Sep 23, 2010, 2:11 PM EDT

    Last season: The Bucks flew through the home stretch to finish with a 46-36 record, but the train carrying deer to be feared was derailed by a season-ending injury to Andrew Bogut. Head Coach: Scott Skiles, who lived up to his reputation as an excellent defensive coach by making the Bucks’ D the second best…

  5. Corey Maggette may miss part of training camp, should be ready for season

    Sep 21, 2010, 1:52 PM EDT

    Corey Maggette had an ankle operation back on July 1. It’s one of those “clean out the bone chips and scar tissue” scoping jobs that many NBA veterans have done in the summer. However, recovery from this may keep Maggette out of the start of Bucks camp, coach Scott Skiles told the Journal Sentinel. “He’s…

  6. Jon Brockman has figured out how Bucks fans eat

    Sep 17, 2010, 2:25 PM EDT

    People are not healthy eaters in Wisconsin. Sure, there are exceptions (I hear you Madison) but I’ve seen it. I live in image-conscious Los Angeles, where there are great burgers, but creative variations of the Steve Nash diet — or just sushi — are the diet staples. Visit my relatives in Wisconsin, and it’s a…

  7. USA's big problem today? The deer they should fear.

    Sep 11, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    As Kurt discussed in our preview last night, Team USA has a number of concerns against Turkey in the FIBA World Championship game today. The crowd will be Roman Coliseum-like. Hedo Turkoglu has been playing like his 2007 version instead of last year’s version. But the biggest concern for Team USA needs to be shutting…

  8. Andrew Bogut played some 5-on-5 games, he may be closer than we thought

    Sep 11, 2010, 3:16 AM EDT

    Call it informal and unplanned all you want, it’s a step forward and a good sign. Andrew Bogut got some run in some 5-on-5 drills with teammates at the Cousins Center in St. Francis (where all the cool Bucks players are working out these days). He told the Journal Sentinel that he needs some conditioning…

  9. Tiny Gallon gets contract to come to Bucks camp

    Sep 10, 2010, 12:52 PM EDT

    It’s hard not to root for a guy named Tiny Gallon. So it’s good to see that Gallon (real first name is Keith, but we wonder if even his mother calls him that) got a make-good contract to come to the Milwaukee Bucks training camp, the team announced today. Gallon was drafted in the second…

  10. Bucks pick Darington Hobson may miss much of season

    Sep 10, 2010, 10:41 AM EDT

    Darington Hobson is a crafty player — not an explosive athlete by NBA standards, but a guy who just makes the right pass, the right decision. Kind of a poor man’s James Harden. It’s why the Bucks drafted him in the second round. It’s why they are disappointed that a lingering groin issue that kept…

  11. Tom Thibodeau lures Adrian Griffin out of Milwaukee to serve as his assistant coach

    Sep 8, 2010, 12:07 PM EDT

    Adrian Griffin is just two years removed from playing in the NBA, but he already has coaching experience and is about to become one of the top assistants for an Eastern Conference contender. According to Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal-Times, Griffin will make the move from Milwaukee, where he was a bit lower on…

  12. Jerry Stackhouse sees some Allen Iverson in Brandon Jennings game

    Aug 29, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Allen Iverson was one of the most entertaining players ever — a fearless game, a guy barely six foot and thin who would fearlessly drive into the trees of the NBA forest and come out with buckets. He was a vanguard of change in NBA, embracing hip-hop culture (or however you wish to define that…

  13. Brandon Jennings: "I guess in three years, me, Tyreke Evans, and Stephen Curry should team up, too."

    Aug 29, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Brandon Jennings has weighed in to TMZ on all the team-ups going on and it’s about what you’d expect. He says that all these team-ups that are going on (and he lumps Boston in with Miami) are bad because it lowers the competition, that “everyone’s trying to play together instead of competing.” He mentions he’s…

  14. Video: And now, Brandon Jennings dancing to Lady Gaga

    Aug 29, 2010, 9:47 AM EDT

    http://twitter.com/BLKICE3/status/22423158193So here’s a wonderful way to start your Sunday. Brandon Jennings apparently lost a bet to someone and had to pay up. The cost? Him dancing, on YouTube, to Lady Gaga. Enjoy this being burned into your brain every time you see him pull up for a jumper. (HT: You Been Blinded) http://www.youtube.com/v/oVhs4jACVbA&rel=0&border=1&color1=0x2b405b&color2=0x6b8ab6&hl=en_US&feature=player_embedded&fs=1

  15. Andrew Bogut elbow still not right, could miss start of season

    Aug 19, 2010, 1:59 PM EDT

    When you think back to just how gruesome Andrew Bogut’s elbow injury was, the fact that rehab has had setbacks and he could be out longer than he hoped should be a surprise. Bogut did a television interview in his native Australia (which was transcribed over at the Real GM forums and was found by…

  16. Earl Boykins near deal with the Milwaukee Bucks

    Aug 19, 2010, 12:50 PM EDT

    There’s not a lot of minutes to be had as the third point guard in Milwaukee, but whatever those minutes are it appears Earl Boykins is going to get them. Boykins is near a one-year deal with the Bucks, according to the Journal Sentinel. While details were not discussed, this almost certainly is for the…

  17. Brandon Jennings has big plans for this season. Really big plans.

    Aug 13, 2010, 11:05 AM EDT

    Brandon Jennings plays a bold game. That’s part of the fun of watching him — he plays with a real swagger. That swagger carries over to his plans for this season, as he told the Milwaukee Journal. “This year I’m working hard to come back,” Jennings said. “I want to be a double-double guy. I…

  18. John Salmons takes aim for the fourth seed

    Aug 6, 2010, 3:11 PM EDT

    The Milwaukee Bucks were an immensely successful team last season relative to expectation, and there’s no reason why they can’t be even better in the coming year. There aren’t a lot of young pieces on the roster set to grow, but the internal development of Brandon Jennings and Andrew Bogut combined with the numerous moves…

  19. Keyon Dooling, Brandon Jennings' unlikely mentor

    Aug 5, 2010, 1:14 PM EDT

    NBA mentors are typically cherished for one of two things (or sometimes both): an extended NBA shelf-life (see Ollie, Kevin) or notable refinement of their game (see Olajuwon, Hakeem). A mentor is a veteran, a pro, a hard-worker, an example for his team, or really, his teammates. That’s probably not the lens with which you’ve…

  20. Kurt Thomas goes to Bulls on two-year deal

    Jul 23, 2010, 8:47 AM EDT

    Kurt Thomas will be the veteran big man off the bench in Chicago this season — and just as importantly play the role of mentor. In a nice little pickup, the Bulls and Thomas have agreed to a two-year deal (second being a team option). Thomas slides into the Brad Miller role — 15 minutes…

  21. Epitaph for Michael Redd's career as a Buck

    Jul 22, 2010, 11:04 AM EDT

    The Bucks have made all kinds of moves this summer, and none of them have looked particularly good for Michael Redd. Re-signing John Salmons, a Redd quasi-replacement, was a start. Then they picked up Corey Maggette via trade, who would certainly hack into the minutes of a healthy Redd. Chris Douglas-Roberts and Keyon Dooling, too,…

  22. Bucks sign Keyon Dooling while Luke Ridnour peaces out

    Jul 19, 2010, 7:35 PM EDT

    The Milwaukee Bucks will have a ridiculous amount of turnover for a playoff team, as John Hammond has agreed to a deal with another rotation player. Keyon Dooling, who filled in at both guard spots off the bench for the Nets last season, will be on his way to Milwaukee on a two-year contract according…

  23. Report: Milwaukee Bucks interested in the recently released Luther Head

    Jul 16, 2010, 3:01 PM EDT

    The Milwaukee Bucks re-signed John Salmons to a five-year, $39 million deal. They picked up Drew Gooden for $32 million over five. They acquired Corey Maggette and the $30.8 million remaining on his contract over the next three seasons. They traded for the Nets’ Chris Douglas Roberts. And now, according to Chris Tomasson of NBA…

  24. NBA Summer League: Notes on Hawks-Bucks

    Jul 16, 2010, 1:41 PM EDT

    Quick thoughts on Hawks-Bucks at Las Vegas Summer League Thursday night… Larry Sanders looks like another first-round steal for John Hammond and the Bucks organization. With head coach Scott Skiles dressed in cargo shorts looking on from the comfortable courtside seats next to Hammond across from the Bucks bench, Sanders brought incredible defensive energy, tallying…

  25. Michael Redd may be out until February '11

    Jul 11, 2010, 2:50 PM EDT

    So that’s why they were so aggressive in pursuit of Corey Maggette.  The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that Michael Redd is not expected back in action before February 2011. Redd, age 30, has been largely replaced by both John Salmons and Maggette (along with Chris Douglas-Roberts) on the wing.  Redd tried to return from injury last…
