Bucks sign F Damien Inglis.

Inglis broke his foot this summer and required surgery which will keep him out until at least the end of August, which may have caused him to fall to Milwaukee in the second round. "We felt like if a player like Inglis does not stay in this draft and goes into next year's draft, he's easily a top 15 to top 20 pick," said GM John Hammond. "Hopefully we will have good value on that pick." Inglis is an impressive athlete with great length for a SF, but he may spend most of his rookie year developing with the Bucks-affiliated Fort Wayne Mad Ants.

Ekpe Udoh - F/C - Bucks

The Heat have "considered" signing unrestricted free agent Ekpe Udoh, according to the Miami Herald.

The Heat aren't limiting their big-man search to Udoh, as they've also been linked to Andray Blatche, Emeka Okafor, Ekpe Udoh and Jason Maxiell. Udoh will serve a negligible role for fantasy purposes regardless of where he lands in free agency.

Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with three points, six boards and one steal vs. New Zealand on Monday.

He's been quiet as the Greek team gets ready for the FIBA World Cup. Antetokounmpo has been coming off the bench and has been playing minutes in the low double-digits, but he could see more action when the event starts later this month. We'll be watching him very closely as a possible breakout guy in 2014-15.

Tony Mitchell has signed with Aquila Basket Trento in Italy.

The 25-year-old made his NBA debut last season with the Bucks while he was on a 10-day deal. Mitchell may have had an opportunity to get on a training camp roster, but he'll play it safe and just go overseas.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored five points with five boards and two assists in an exhibition game vs. Slovenia.

He played just 12 minutes off the bench and shot 2-of-5 from the field. Antetokounmpo was one of the bigger stories at Las Vegas Summer League due to the comments of coach Jason Kidd saying he could look to play the Greek Freak at point guard. He may have some trouble shooting the ball efficiently, but his defensive contributions make him a player to watch in camp and at the FIBA World Cup.

The Bucks' physical therapy and training director, Chris McKenzie, said that John Henson "finally put some weight on" this summer.

McKenzie also singled out Khris Middleton for extraordinary work in the training room this summer, but reserved his most effusive praise for Henson. "I can't wait until people get to see John Henson," McKenzie said. "He really can do things [physically] that he couldn't do [last season]." Henson flashed tremendous potential last year and could be a fantasy steal if coach Jason Kidd turns him loose, but his role is somewhat uncertain with Ersan Ilyasova and Larry Sanders still in Milwaukee.

Jabari Parker said on Saturday that he's "trying not to be that second pick bust."

"Everyday that I step on the court, I just remind myself that I have a long ways to go," Parker said. The Bucks were extremely high on him and he didn't disappoint at summer league. Parker will likely get plenty of minutes at both forward and his game should certainly translate on the stat sheet. He should be the first rookie off your board in redraft and dynasty leagues.

Damien Inglis (foot) said he's happy about being with the Bucks for his rookie season.

"The Bucks are a young team, and I'm so glad to be part of this project," Inglis said. His broken foot from this past spring should be recovered in time for training camp. The 6'9" forward has a 7'3" wingspan, so the Bucks have yet another young, rangy player to use at the three or four. He's off the radar in redraft leagues for now.

Bucks owners Wes Edens and Marc Lasry are hoping to have a new arena site in 3-4 months.

The owners have committed $100 million to building a new arena, which is expected to cost around $400 to $500 million. While there aren't many clear-cut favorites for a location, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said Edens "is learning the territory very quickly." The Bucks were dead last in attendance last season, but adding Jabari Parker could help them to move up a few spots next season.
Aug 4 - 10:17 AM

Jerryd Bayless said he can play point guard or shooting guard for the Bucks this season.

"I can do both and I feel I can do both well," Bayless said. "Just depending on whatever coach Kidd envisions for this program, that's what I'm going to try to do." The backcourt rotation in Milwaukee is one of the more unsolved mysteries of the NBA right now. They added Kendall Marshall and Bayless while Brandon Knight may be a more capable shooting guard than a point guard. It does seem somewhat clear that Bayless is going to come off the bench and one would think the bulk of his minutes would come at shooting guard.

Rookie C Johnny O'Bryant enjoyed his time playing for the Bucks' Summer League squad.

"It was just getting used to the NBA-style offense we ran, getting used to the different play clock and the NBA rules," O'Bryant said Friday. "But overall it was a fun experience for me." While the Bucks aren't exactly brimming with talent, it will still be difficult for O'Bryant to see quality minutes during his rookie campaign. He is not someone to target in standard leagues.

Damien Inglis (broken right foot) hopes to have his walking boot removed in the next two weeks.

Inglis also stated that he hopes to sign his rookie deal with the Bucks in the near future. Inglis is still very raw, and he'll likely spend some time in the D-League this upcoming season. He's unlikely to become a rotation player, and he's off the radar in most formats.
Aug 1 - 3:41 PM

The Bucks hired Greg Foster to be an assistant on Jason Kidd's staff.

He is coming from the 76ers and has been known to focus on helping big men. The Bucks had some major issues with their frontcourt last season and they're also very young, so it's great hire for the league's worst team.

Milwaukee Bucks sign G Jerryd Bayless.

The deal is $3 million for two years, fully guaranteed. "This is a new opportunity and a new situation. I'm excited to be a part of this community," Bayless said during a media session. He averaged 9.1 points over 72 games with the Grizzlies and Celtics last season, but will be hard-pressed to find enough minutes to contribute in standard fantasy leagues.
Jul 31 - 11:59 AM

Bucks sign C Johnny O'Bryant.

He turned in an impressive summer league, averaging 8.2 points, 5.2 boards, 0.6 steals and 0.6 blocks in 18.2 minutes per game. O'Bryant was the 36th pick in the draft and the team said they viewed him as a first-round talent. He'll have to work on his conditioning, but he could wind up making the Bucks given their lack of an interior presence.
