Found July 18, 2013 on The Sports Bank:
The Milwaukee Bucks have signed free-agent center Zaza Pachulia, who returns for his second stint with the Bucks after also spending the 2004-05 season in Milwaukee. A native of Tbilisi, Georgia, Pachulia was selected by Orlando with the 42nd overall pick in 2003.

New Bucks aide Nick Van Exel has ability to relate to players

ST. FRANCIS, Wis. -- There are a lot of words that can be used to describe Nick Van Exel's NBA career, but future coach probably didn't come up too often in conversations about the former point guard.
