Milwaukee Bucks

  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. Milwaukee Bucks close to five-year, $39 million with John Salmons

    Jul 1, 2010, 2:25 PM EDT

    John Salmons was good to the Milwaukee Bucks. Now they are being very good to John Salmons. The Bucks and Salmons are close to a five-year, $39 million deal that would keep the swingman in Wisconsin, as reported by David Aldridge at NBA.com. There is nothing final — as CBSSports.com is reporting — and nothing…

  6. Report: Milwaukee Bucks, Drew Gooden agree to five-year, $32 million deal

    Jul 1, 2010, 10:03 AM EDT

    Everyone who had Drew Gooden in the office pool as the first free agent to sign a deal, come on up and collect your money. Anyone? Hello? The Milwaukee Bucks have agreed on a five-year, $32 million deal with Drew Gooden, according to Adrian Wojnarowski at Yahoo. That is the full mid-level exception deal. No…

  7. Corey Maggette and Chris Douglas-Roberts aren't perfect, but could be just what the Bucks need

    Jun 23, 2010, 12:02 PM EDT

    It’s been said that if given the right touches and opportunity, most NBA players can be transformed in 20-point scorers. Move such a claim within the limits of reason however (come on, is any team really going to give Jarron Collins 35 shots a night to hit that mark?), and the pool of players in…

  8. Chris Douglas-Roberts traded to Bucks for a second-round pick, Nets to target Boozer in free agency

    Jun 23, 2010, 9:57 AM EDT

    UPDATE 9:57 pm: The two sides have reached a deal — the Nets will get a 2012 second round pick, according to Chad Ford. The NBA equivalent of a player to be named later. That is not much to get back for an up-and-coming player like CDR. But it does free up just more than…

  9. Add John Salmons to your list of summer free agents

    Jun 22, 2010, 3:34 PM EDT

    No real surprise here, we’ve been expecting this for a couple months, but now it is official: John Salmons is going to opt out and test the free agent market. That’s what the Bucks general manager told FanHouse’s Chris Tomasson. “He’s given us indications that he will opt out,” Milwaukee general manager John Hammond, named…

  10. Add the Clippers to Kelvin Sampson's suitors

    May 27, 2010, 5:50 PM EDT

    The Bucks’ successful season was sure to raise the individual stock of a number of the principals involved (Think John Salmons earned himself a few bucks in free agency with his tear?), and assistant coach Kelvin Sampson appears to be the first to reap the benefits. Not only do the Cavs seem to have legitimate…

  11. Bucks start talks with Salmons agent, will keep Delfino

    May 7, 2010, 8:30 AM EDT

    The Bucks are just trying to keep the band together. They liked the way last season ended. Well, except for that Andrew Bogut injury thing. But they were one of the hottest teams going to last month of the season and even without Bogut they pushed the Hawks to seven games.  Next season Brandon Jennings…

  12. John Salmons going to test free agent market, rather than wait to be traded at deadline

    May 4, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    Rather than just being a boost for the stretch run and the playoffs, John Salmons may be brought in to be a boost for a team for the entire next season. Last year, he came to the Bulls near the trading deadline and helped them into the playoffs then take the Boston Celtics seven games.…

  13. Fear the deer. No, literally fear the deer, as two break into Wisconsin pub after game

    May 4, 2010, 8:12 AM EDT

    You’re sitting in the Stout Ale House in Wisconsin, having just finished watching the Bucks ad Hawks game seven, wearing your “Fear the Deer” T-shirt, drowning your sorrows — when it became literally time to fear the deer. That’s because two disoriented and frightened deer crashed through the front door of the pub and went…

  14. NBA Playoffs Bucks Hawks Game 7: Hawks too strong, too good, too much to fear the deer

    May 2, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    In the playoffs, how you advance doesn’t matter, as long as you advance. And while the Milwaukee Bucks have nothing to be ashamed of, putting on a great performance in spite of missing Andrew Bogut, the Hawks will move on to face the Orlando Magic. Lucky them. The Hawks defeated the Bucks 95-74 to advance…

  15. Winderman: Hammond as Executive of the Year because less is more

    Apr 24, 2010, 9:43 PM EDT

    The press release from the NBA that accompanied Saturday’s announcement of Bucks General Manager John Hammond as Executive of the Year was noteworthy for what it didn’t mention. In announcing Hammond as winner of the award, the release cited the drafting of Brandon Jennings, the selection of coach Scott Skiles, the addition of veterans Carlos…

  16. NBA Playoffs: Saturday is the last stand

    Apr 24, 2010, 10:40 AM EDT

    8 teams play today, 4 in Game 3’ss, and 4 in Game 4’s. But for the underdog in each of these contests, this will be their last stand in the hopes of a competitive series. If these teams want to force a Game 7, forget about the elimination game, whenever it comes. Today is their…

  17. Quote of the day, where a new food craze comes to Milwaukee

    Apr 20, 2010, 9:26 AM EDT

    “Viper. I like Boa constrictor, too. But viper is the best meat I’ve ever had. It tastes like fish and chicken combined. It’s very good.” –Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, the Cameroonian Prince who offered up something different when asked what his favorite meat was. (Via Gery Woelfel of the Milwaukee Journal Times. 

  18. John Salmons may test the open waters of free agency

    Apr 20, 2010, 9:19 AM EDT

    Yesterday we talked about the Milwaukee Bucks wanting to lock up John Salmons and trying to negotiate an extension for him. Of course they want to extend him, the Bucks have been a much-improved team since Salmons filled the shoes of the injured Michael Redd. They have been better than when Redd was playing, their…

  19. NBA playoffs: East difference-makers could be the change they wish to see in the world

    Apr 16, 2010, 11:39 AM EDT

    While the Eastern Conference playoffs may lack the volatility of the West in the first round, there are still all kinds of characters scrambling about looking to cause mayhem. There’s something to be said about being in a series with no expectations, and underdogs looking to seize the moment can have a field day if…

  20. Andrew Bogut is entering the top tier

    Feb 27, 2010, 8:35 AM EDT

    Andrew Bogut has been thought of as a nice player for a couple of years. A big man with touch, but who suffered on a poor team and lacked the necessary components to be part of a winning formula. This year, all that’s changing. Bogut’s points are up significantly (16.2 from 11.7), and he’s averaging…

  21. Salmons still going to Bucks, but now it's for Warrick and Alexander

    Feb 18, 2010, 10:53 AM EDT

    We told you earlier that the Bucks and Bulls had worked out a trade to send John Salmons to Milwaukee for Francisco Elson and Kurt Thomas, then let you know the Bulls were in flux about whether it would be Thomas or Hakim Warrick. Now we’re here to tell you that the Bulls flip-flopped this…

  22. Trade Deadline: Salmons for Kurt Thomas and Francisco Elson

    Feb 18, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Update 2/18 10:17 am: Reports are now saying that there is some flux on whether the Bulls want Kurt Thomas or Hakim Warrick in combination with Elson. Warrick’s contract is for only $3 million expiring as opposed to Thomas’ $3.8 million expiring. Same basic structure, just a different role and a bit less money. 2/17…

  23. Trade Deadline: DEFCON Central Division

    Feb 17, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    A quick look at the league, division by division, at where all the teams in the NBA are as the trade deadline hits zero hour. DEFCON indicates how close they are to a major move, with 5 means standing pat and 1 means already have a deal in place. Here’s the Central Division. Cleveland Cavaliers:…
