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.

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.

Giannis Antetokounmpo was hospitalized this weekend due to gastroenteritis, but he's expected to rejoin the Greek national team on Monday.

This isn't a serious problem, fortunately, and Antetokoumpo was brought to the hospital for rapid hydration following his illness. He should be fun to watch throughout Greek's run in the FIBA World Cup this summer, and expectations are high for his sophomore season with the Bucks.

Giannis Antetokounmpo was officially selected to the Greek FIBA World Cup team.

There was never a doubt, but it's worth mentioning considering how several USA players dropped out. Antetokounmpo didn't get big minutes in the exhibition matches leading up to the tournament and the national team may not unleash him. After a headline-filled summer league, we'll be watching him closely.

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.
Aug 16 - 3:34 PM

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.
