Milwaukee Bucks

  1. Ilyasova would rather play in Turkey than Milwaukee

    fan_g_ilyasova_sy_576

    If you had to choose between living in Milwaukee or Turkey, what would you choose? Ersan Ilyasova wants to choose Turkey, but may not get that option. Ilyasova is playing for Anadolu Efes in Istanbul during the lockout, although the Bucks have an option on him for the upcoming season and his deal has an…

  2. Andrew Bogut close to deal to play in Australia

    Oct 3, 2011, 3:50 PM EST

    andrew bogut

    Andrew Bogut is playing down under, mate. Insurance issues had been holding back the biggest name in Australian basketball from signing with a team in his native land, but that appears to have been worked out, according to The Age (via Brewhoop, which has a great breakdown). Bogut and his manager Bruce Kaider have received…

  3. Andrew Bogut will never be the same

    Sep 25, 2011, 7:00 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Chicago Bulls

    I would post the video, but in all honesty, if I watch it again I’m going to throw up. If you have not seen the Andrew Bogut elbow injury, you can find it at thingswhichshouldneverbeshownagain.com. (Not a real site. I don’t want you landing on some random spam page.) Anyway, Bogut has been rehabbing after…

  4. Does anybody want to go to Milwaukee? Przybilla does.

    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…

  5. Brandon Jennings thinks Stephen Jackson will be the difference for the Bucks

    Sep 4, 2011, 9:27 AM EST

    Stephen Jackson, Mark Ayotte

    Stephen Jackson never seemed too thrilled about being sent to Milwaukee. He had embraced the Bobcats, had taken them to the playoffs for the first time, and was comfortable, even if the fit wasn’t perfect. So it took him a while to make it to the Bucks. But the fact remains that even as an…

  6. Today’s overseas roundup: Patty Mills to Australia, Bogut to join him?

    Aug 29, 2011, 4:30 PM EST

    andrew bogut

    There are so many NBA players both talking to and signing with overseas teams that we collect them in a daily roundup. I do this in bullet points because I am a blogger. Agent Mulder could more easily ignore a conspiracy than I could ignore the chance to use bullet points. • Patty Mills is…

  7. Brandon Jennings reflects on his the beginnings of his basketball career, AAU life, and repping Compton

    Aug 27, 2011, 9:00 AM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Atlanta Hawks, Game 7

    If there’s any kind of underlying theme for the current lockout, it’s NBA players of all ilks returning “home.” For some, it’s less literal; plenty of young NBA players have returned to the college campuses they once called their own in an effort to complete their degrees and, in some cases, compete against the players…

  8. Michael Jordan states the owners case, likely to get fined

    Aug 18, 2011, 12:11 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v Chicago Bulls

    If you thought as a former player Michael Jordan could be the bridge of sanity between the NBA owners and players, think again. Jordan is the owner of one of the most financially challenged teams in the NBA in the Charlotte Bobcats. He’s one of those small market, heavily leveraged owners who need the system…

  9. Report: Greek team makes offer to Corey Maggette

    Aug 12, 2011, 3:45 PM EST

    Corey Maggette

    Greek teams were not expected to be big players in the “grab an NBA player during the lockout” game because, well, their country’s economy is so bad it’s sucking half of Europe into the seventh level of hell with it. But at least one team is making a run. According to TalkBasket.net (who got it…

  10. Another day, another guy embarrassed by Brandon Jennings

    Aug 10, 2011, 1:12 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Atlanta Hawks, Game 1

    Yesterday we brought you the video of Bucks star Brandon Jennings passing off a guy’s head to himself. Today, different guy, but he gets the dribble between your defender’s legs move from Jennings. Two killer moves. Apparently that internship is really paying off. One little note on this move — you’ve got to finish or…

  11. Video: Brandon Jennings goes off his defender’s head

    Aug 8, 2011, 9:28 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Atlanta Hawks, Game 7

    I used to think the pass between your opponent’s legs was about the most embarrassing thing that could happen to a guy. Well, that or being in Blake Griffin‘s way on a fast break. But Brandon Jennings has upped the ante. This video is from Dyckman Park in New York, where pro/am games run in…

  12. Brandon Jennings is not very nice in streetball play

    Aug 6, 2011, 8:00 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Atlanta Hawks, Game 7

    Brandon Jennings seems to be coming into his own this summer. He’s publicly committed to improving his game, has raised his profile in a sponsorship “internship” with Under Armour, and has been playing steadily in various summer leagues. Last few days he’s been patrolling Dyckman League. And one unlucky defender paid the price for keeping…

  13. Ray Patterson, former Bucks, Rockets president, dies

    Aug 4, 2011, 9:50 AM EST

    patterson

    Ray Patterson, a man who played a big role in the Milwaukee Bucks and Houston Rockets franchises, has passed away at the age of 89 after battling heart and lung diseases. Patterson was the president of the expansion Milwaukee Bucks, helping form maybe the most successful NBA expansion team ever (while keeping his job as…

  14. Brandon Jennings summer internship blows yours away

    Aug 3, 2011, 7:55 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Atlanta Hawks, Game 7

    Brandon Jennings has popped up at a couple East Coast Pro-Am runs this summer, but mostly he has been focused on his new internship. Of course, it’s a pretty sweet internship. Way, way better than the one you had at 21. Jennings is one of the star endorsers of Under Armour, and as an “intern”…

  15. Turkish team decides to take Patty Mills over Dooling

    Aug 3, 2011, 1:31 PM EST

    MILLS_PATRICK

    Reports had come out that Keyon Dooling — last seen as a guard off the bench for the Milwaukee Bucks — was going to play for Turkish team Anadolu Efes during the lockout. But it turns out, Anadolu Efes would rather have Patty Mills (last seen as a guard off the Trail Blazers bench). That’s…

  16. Andrew Bogut an assistant coach with Australian team

    Jul 28, 2011, 10:30 AM EST

    andrew bogut

    Andrew Bogut is not playing for his native Australia this summer as the nation tries to qualify for the 2012 London Olympics. Bogut is coming off a second surgery on his elbow and there was the issue of getting insurance during the lockout. So instead he is coaching. Here is the note from Sportando (via…

  17. Two former Bucks land on Wisconsin’s tax cheats list

    Jul 28, 2011, 8:53 AM EST

    latrell sprewell

    Public shame to force people to behave is a time-honored American tradition. From the early colonists putting people in the stocks for every minor offense they could think of — one Captain Kemble spent time in them for the horrid crime as kissing his wife on the Sabbath — we have tried to embarrass and…

  18. Moncrief to become assistant coach with Bucks

    Jul 27, 2011, 6:10 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jul 25, 2011, 6:38 PM EST

    fan_g_ilyasova_sy_576

    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…

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

    Jul 21, 2011, 11:23 AM EST

    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…

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

    Jul 19, 2011, 11:29 AM EST

    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…

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

    Jul 18, 2011, 2:05 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jul 11, 2011, 9:15 AM EST

    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…

  24. Jackson says Bobcats shut him down to miss playoffs

    Jun 30, 2011, 8:10 AM EST

    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…

  25. New-look Bucks hoping to improve offensively

    Jun 28, 2011, 5:39 PM EST

    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…
