Power Ranking the Likeliest Potential Destinations for Carlos Boozer

5. Milwaukee BucksThis is highly unlikely, but amongst the 9 teams with cap room, Boozer would actually fit best, roster wise, with the Bucks, albeit the unlikelihood of them actually bringing him in.  The Bucks have John Henson and Larry Sanders at Power Forward and Center, respectively. If the Bucks feel as though they can make a few moves and possibly compete for a playoff spot...

Report: Bucks star headed to rehab

credit: Uptown Magazine It doesn’t seem like very long ago that Larry Sanders’ stock couldn’t stop rising. He emerged as one of the few rim protectors good enough to cover up for an otherwise bad defense, and showed enough promise for the Milwaukee Bucks to sign him to a big extension. Now, it seems like things can’t get a ton worse. He was virtually non-existent for the...

Report: Larry Sanders expected to enter rehab this summer

Bucks center Larry Sanders was a breakout star two years ago. He became a dominant defender, was shown to be an intelligent, thoughtful guy, and looked like a franchise center for the Bucks. Milwaukee rewarded him with a four-year, $44 million extension, despite the fact that he had locker room altercations with teammates. Then last year, everything fell apart. He broke his thumb...

Bucks only team that will host draft’s top 4 prospects?

So who said no one wants to play in Milwaukee? Less than a month after a rival NBA general manager called out the city and the team in an interview with Forbes magazine, the Bucks are certainly not living up to their alleged reputation of being the NBA’s Siberia. If that were the case, they wouldn’t be on the cusp of being the only team in the league to host Joel Embiid, Andrew...

Ainge would have to be high to trade for Larry Sanders

Sherrod Blakely breaks out all his best marijuana jokes in a story about Milwaukee’s Larry Sanders.
