John Hammond hints at Bucks D-League affiliate, Giannis wants to get taller

The Milwaukee Bucks are one of just eight NBA teams who will enter the 16/17 NBA season without their own D-League affiliate. If General Manager John Hammond's interview on 620 WTMJ yesterday was any indication, it might not stay that way for long.

Khris Middleton the plus-minus star of Milwaukee Bucks for second straight year

Basketball is in many ways a simple game. Score more points than the other team, you win. Score fewer, you lose. All of which makes analysis of NBA plus-minus data an informative -- albeit complicated -- endeavor. Revisiting an exercise from last spring, I thought it'd be interesting to comb through both ESPN's real plus-minus and NBA.com's simple plus-minus data to see what it...

The Overlooked Star In Milwaukee

Giannis Antetokounmpo has received a lot of attention lately, and deservedly so. The 6'11" basketball player (I cannot with good conscience limit such a versatile, positionless player to the constraint of a single position at this point) is currently averaging 16.9 points, 7.6 rebounds, and 4.3 assists per game while shooting 50.5 percent.

April Autopsy: Milwaukee Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks arrived at Christmas Day 2015 with the unwelcome distinction of being the most exasperating team in the NBA. It is of little comfort to the Bucks and their fans that by season’s end, the Chicago Bulls and Houston Rockets passed Milwaukee as elites in terms of eliciting exasperation. The Bucks let this season get away from them, and there’s no sense in spending...

Turning the Corner: The Bucks Are Preparing for the Boss Battle

The Bucks took a step back this season, but their young core is brimming with potential and their path towards contention is beginning to become clear.
