Sparky: What will the Bucks do?
It’s time to take a look at the Bucks roster and what lies ahead for 2012…Contracts that are up after 2011:
Beno Udrih- He has a player option for 7.8 million in 2012. Based on how unhappy he has apparently been in 2011, I would imagine he would opt out. However, he isn’t going to get that amount in free agency, so if there is a coaching change I’d have to think he will choose to stay.
Sparky’s Take: See ya!
Ersan Ilyasova: As he has noted before to the media, he is going to whatever team in the NBA or overseas offers him the most money. Our WSSP Basketball Insider Gery Woelfel has said that Ersan could get in the neighborhood of 8 million or more in free agency this offseason. Bucks GM John Hammond has made it known that he would like to keep Ersan on this team as it builds going forward.
Sparky’s Take: If they can get him for five to six million then I’m good with keeping him. If not, then he can enjoy his new money in another city.
Kwame Brown: Hahahahahaa
Sparky’s Take: Hahahahahaha
Carlos Delfino: I really have no issue with Delfino, he is a decent defender and a streaky shooter. He is a nice role player for a championship caliber team, however, the Bucks aren’t that.
Sparky’s Take: I’d rather fill his spot with a young player who can go through the growing pains in 2012-2013. I’d wish him well in his future endeavors and hope he does well on a team that can contend for a championship.
Shaun Livingston: He’s a nice end of bench option for most teams, not certain that he really even qualifies as a role player for most teams. It’s a shame that the injury he suffered early in his career really robbed him of what could have been one heck of a career. You have to admire him for still being in the league and contributing when asked.
Sparky’s Take: Good luck with your next team.
