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.

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.

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.
Aug 19 - 11:57 AM

The Bucks are in "advanced discussions" to sign Jason Terry, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

Besides Khris Middleton, the Bucks have a massive need for shooters. Terry would likely be more of emergency depth and add some veteran leadership to a young team, so it's a decent fit. If JET is up for another season, this would be a good spot for him. He would be the 14th player on the roster.

The Lakers had Johnny O'Bryant in as part of their free agent minicamp on Wednesday.

O'Bryant has been weighing his option after being waived by the Bucks, but it doesn't sound like he'd see many minutes with the Lakers. "I don’t think we’re looking at players here that would be in the rotation, although you never know," general manager Mitch Kupchak said. "They come to camp and earn whatever they can get." O'Bryant will likely get a training camp invite from an NBA team, but he doesn't have any fantasy value at this point in time.

O.J. Mayo has filed an appeal on his two-year suspension from the league for violating the NBA's Anti-Drug Program.

Mayo said that he won't take the suspension lying down, and that he expects to return to the court "soon." The NBA has not clarified what drug Mayo tested positive for to queue the suspension, but the harsh response from the league indicates that he was using a "drug of abuse." It'll be interesting to see if Mayo can overturn the suspension, but even if he does, he won't be a viable target in standard leagues.

Steve Novak is still hopeful to reach an agreement to return to the Bucks.

Mark Bartelstein, Novak's agent, said that the sharpshooter has options but Milwaukee is his first choice. "There have been a few teams that we’ve talked to; you always got to keep your doors open,’’ Bartelstein said. "But we’re still talking with the Bucks and, hopefully, we’ll make a deal with them. Steve would love to stay in Milwaukee. It’s a very special place for him.’’ Novak would see minutes in the teens at best with the Bucks, so fantasy owners don't need to pay him any attention.
