Mirza Teletovic said the Bucks need his shooting.

He's right. Even with Khris Middleton, the Bucks were dead last in the NBA for 3-pointers last season. Teletovic has played for coach Jason Kidd before, so he should have a smooth transition on his new team. The Bucks are going to have some wild lineup combos this year, so there should be a role for Mirza in the mid 20s for minutes. He's a sneaky late-round pick.

Both the Warriors and Cavaliers reportedly expressed "serious interest" in signing Larry Sanders this summer.

With training camp just a month away, and no current rumblings of a contract offer from either of the aforementioned clubs, it seems as though their reported interest in Sanders has dissipated. Sanders reportedly is uninterested in signing a training camp deal, but given the way that he exited Milwaukee, it would be surprising to see another team out there just hand him a guaranteed deal. For now, an NBA comeback for Sanders seems unlikely.

Matthew Dellavedova said making the postseason will be the "main target" for the Bucks this upcoming season.

Dellavedova also said that he expects to take on more of a leadership role with the Bucks, and that he's really excited to be able to learn from head coach Jason Kidd. He could challenge Michael Carter-Williams for the starting point guard position in Milwaukee, but with Giannis Antetokounmpo set to run the offense, it's unlikely Delly will be able to provide much to owners in standard leagues.

Xavier Henry has signed a training camp deal with the Bucks, according to Shams Charania.

Henry had previously worked out with the Lakers, but will instead join the Bucks for training camp. The 25-year-old likely saw more opportunity to make the roster in Milwaukee and will now look to hook on as a bench player. Even if he makes the Bucks final roster, Henry won't have any fantasy value in standard fantasy leagues.

Bucks sign F Steve Novak.

He's been expected to sign for about a month, so now it's official. Novak only played three games with the Bucks last season following the trade before the deadline. He is not expected to be in the rotation.

Larry Sanders reportedly isn't interested in a training camp deal.

Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders indicated that Sanders is looking for the "right situation with real opportunity," but so far nothing has come to fruition. Sanders is 28 years old and has been working out in preparation for an NBA comeback, and he could be a bargain if he lands on the right team -- he's apparently willing to play for the veteran's minimum.

Jason Terry reportedly expects to play meaningful minutes for the Bucks this upcoming season.

"He wants his minutes," said an NBA executive, whose team had shown some interest in signing Terry. "He didn’t go [to Milwaukee] to sit on the bench." Terry will provide the Bucks with some much-needed 3-point shooting, but it's just not realistic to expect the 38-year-old to eclipse the 20-minute mark on most nights. He's off the radar just about everywhere.

Jason Terry is ready to embrace a mentorship role in Milwaukee.

"If you look at all playoff and championship teams, they have solid veteran guys to steer the ship," Terry said. "There are going to be times during the season when the coach’s voice, some of the young guys get tired of hearing it. That’s when the veteran leadership steps in and says, ‘No, we’re not going to go away from the ship. We’re going to continue to follow the right direction.’" Most if not all of Terry's value will be behind the scenes with the Bucks, but there's little doubt he could help them space the floor in certain lineups.

Jason Terry said he had other options before he signed with the Bucks.

While Terry signed with the Bucks, his free agency search mainly focused on joining a contender. "I had a couple of contenders that I was seriously looking at," Terry said. "Two of them were in the Finals. I made a call to Pop. San Antonio was another one. I always thought about going back and trying to finish off where I started in Atlanta. I liked what they did. And then I seriously considered Boston, though we didn't have a conversation." The 38-year-old will now serve as a bench player for the Bucks and won't have much fantasy value this season.

Jared Cunningham has signed a deal to play in China for the 2016-17 season.

Cunningham will play with Jiangsu Tongxi after spending the 2015-16 season with the Cavaliers and Bucks. While he could ink an NBA deal after the Chinese season ends in February, Cunningham is off the fantasy radar for the time being.

Bucks sign G Jason Terry.

It's official for the 38-year-old guard. Terry is going to add a veteran presence to the Bucks as a backup. He's not a lock for the rotation, but the Bucks could definitely use another shooter.

Matthew Dellavedova was torched during Australia's blowout loss to Serbia on Friday.

Dellavedova tallied just three points and three assists while getting badly outplayed by Serbia's Milos Teodosic, who finished with a game-high 22 points and five assists. Delly shot just 1-of-6 from the floor and committed three turnovers. The poor performance was particularly disappointing because Dellavedova dished out 13 assists in Australia’s first game vs. Serbia, a game which the Boomers won by 15. Australia will look to bounce back in the bronze medal game against Spain on Sunday.

Updating a previous report, Jason Terry's deal with the Bucks is expected to be finalized on Monday.

Terry will serve as a veteran presence in Milwaukee's locker room, but his fantasy value will be non-existent earning limited minutes behind Kris Middleton and Matthew Dellavedova.
Aug 19 - 6:21 PM

The Bucks are expected to sign Jason Terry on Friday.

The Bucks are also expected to reach an agreement with Steve Novak soon, meaning the 14th and 15th roster spots will be filled. The Bucks certainly could use some more floor spacing, but Terry is expected to have a limited role off the bench.
Aug 19 - 1:49 PM

The Bucks are expected to sign Steve Novak.

Novak suffered a season-ending knee injury last season, but the Bucks will sign him as soon as he receives medical clearance. Novak will be the 15th man on the roster if the Bucks also sign Jason Terry as reported on Friday. Neither player will have more than a limited role in Milwaukee.
