Gary Payton will be a special advisor for Giannis Antetokounmpo this season.

The Bucks seem to be legitimately considering Antetokounmpo as a point guard. Payton will join the Bucks for training camp and the 19-year old's coach, Jason Kidd, should also help him. That said, he was extremely turnover prone in Las Vegas, so he still has some work to do. He's a high-upside pick to take late in fantasy drafts.

Damien Inglis (foot) was at a Bucks practice on Wednesday.

His foot injury seems minor and he should be good to go for training camp later this month. Inglis will be with the Bucks this season, but he will likely be in the D-League to help him get some regular playing time. Fantasy owners in redraft leagues can ignore the Frenchman for now.

Free agent Michael Eric has signed a minimum-salary deal with the Bucks.

He'll join Milwaukee for training camp but is unlikely to make the team, as the Bucks' frontcourt already features Ersan Ilyasova, John Henson, Larry Sanders, Zaza Pachulia, Johnny O'Bryant, D.J. Stephens and Chris Wright.

Several teams are interested in Ramon Sessions and he could be closing in on a deal, according to Basketball Insiders.

The Rockets had previously shown interest in the 28-year-old, but seem to have moved on by acquiring Jason Terry via trade. Sessions averaged 12.3 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 4.1 assists with the Bucks and Bobcats (now Hornets) during the 2013-14 season, but is more of a deep league fantasy option unless he can somehow find himself a starting job.

Milwaukee Bucks assistant general manager David Morway said in an interview that Larry Sanders is part of the team's long-term plan.

Sanders had a very forgettable and injury-plagued 2013-14 season after breaking out in 2012-13, and it sounds like the Bucks haven't given up on him yet. "Larry is in our future plans," said Morway. "We are hopeful that this year Larry gets back to being the basketball player that he was two years ago. He is a defensive presence and a game changer on the court." If Sanders can enter the 2014-15 season with his head on straight, he will be a very valuable addition to many fantasy rosters in the middle rounds of drafts.

Giannis Antetokounmpo didn't do much as Greece was eliminated from the World Cup by Serbia, tallying seven points on 3-of-3 shooting to go with four assists, two rebounds, and a block.

Giannis has a lot of potential, but has struggled with consistency. He's now averaging 6.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 0.8 steals through five games of tournament play. It'll be interesting to see how the position battle between Giannis and O.J. Mayo plays out over training camp and preseason, but obviously the Greek Freak's value would be better if he lands the starting job. He's worth a late-round flier in standard leagues.

Jared Dudley said he struggled in 2013-14 due to a pair of knee injuries.

He was traded to the Bucks last month and coach Jason Kidd said Dudley will be there to help the younger players. "We need that in the locker room as much as we need him to be himself on the court by defending and knocking down threes and being part of the team," Kidd said. The Bucks' two best assets play small forward, so it's not going to be easy for Dudley to get consistent playing time.
Sep 6 - 10:41 AM

Coach Jason Kidd said Giannis Antetokounmpo has been doing well for the Greek national team.

"He is filling up the stat sheet," Kidd said. Back in Las Vegas, Kidd said he may give Antetokoumpo some minutes at point guard, which became one of the biggest stories of summer league. Although, the Greek Freak didn't fare too well as a ball-handler, so he has a long way to go.

Giannis Antetokounmpo went scoreless in Greece's 79-71 win over Argentina on Thursday.

In only 12 minutes of action the Greek Freak only took two shots, missing them both. He added six rebounds and one block to what was a very forgettable evening. Antetokounmpo had been playing well in the World Cup up until this point, so hopefully this is merely an outlier.
Sep 4 - 5:48 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 15 points vs. Puerto Rico in Monday's win, adding three rebounds, one steal and one turnover in 23 minutes.

He continues to get to the line and made 5-of-7 from there today to go with 5-of-8 on two-pointers and missing all three from beyond the arc. As expected, Antetokounmpo has been up and down in the tournament, but we should get to see plenty more of him with the Greek's 3-0 record so far. He's a high-upside gamble late in fantasy drafts.

The Rockets are not interested in Bucks' guard Ramon Sessions.

Rockets beat writer Jonathan Feigen called the chances Sessions ends up in Houston "unlikely." News that the Rockets were trying to swing a sign-and-trade emerged Monday, but now it appears a chance of a swap is off the table. Sessions is a nice backup point guard, but should not be on fantasy radars until he has defined role on a team.
Aug 28 - 5:51 PM

John Henson adding weight and strength "should pay off as the Bucks opening-game starting center," according to Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Time.

This is a bit of a surprise considering Henson lost minutes to Jeff Adrien while Larry Sanders will be 100 percent healthy for training camp. The only thing clear about the Bucks starting five is that it's a mess right now, and that's especially true in the frontcourt. Henson has only really come around as a rebounder, so he may have to add some skills to go with his added weight before coach Jason Kidd says anything about him starting.

The Clippers have agreed to trade Jared Dudley and a future first-round pick to the Bucks, in exchange for Carlos Delfino and Miroslav Raduljica.

Dudley is owed $8.5 million over the next two seasons, whereas Delfino and Raduljica have a combined $4.8 million in guaranteed salary left on their deals, so the Clippers used their first-round draft pick to entice Milwaukee to take on the extra money. Dudley is a proficient 3-point shooter but he faces stiff competition for playing time from guys like Jabari Parker, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton. Fantasy owners can safely ignore him on draft day.

The Rockets are trying to acquire Ramon Sessions in a sign-and-trade with the Bucks.

It would be a terrific fit for the Rockets. Sessions is among the league leaders in drives per 48 minutes and the Rockets really need a backup point guard. He would likely come off the bench behind Pat Beverley while Sessions would hurt the chances of guys like Isaiah Canaan, Troy Daniels and Nick Johnson. This move would hurt Beverley's upside.

Joel Przybilla has officially retired from the NBA at age 34.

The 15-year veteran began and finished his pro career with the Milwaukee Bucks, but he spent his best years with the Trail Blazers from 2004-2012. His rebounding and shot-blocking rarely thrust him into the spotlight, but he was a true professional and the NBA will miss his contributions on the court and in his community.
