From the Milwaukee Bucks:

The Milwaukee Bucks have requested waivers on guard Darington Hobson (6-7, 210), General Manager John Hammond announced today.

Hobson, 24, was originally selected by the Bucks with the 37th overall pick of the 2010 NBA Draft, but was waived prior to the start of the 2010-11 season. Hobson re-signed with Milwaukee as a free agent on Dec. 10, 2011, and appeared in five regular season games for the Bucks this season, tallying four points, three rebounds and six assists in 39 total minutes of action. Hobson also spent two separate stints with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the NBA D-League where he averaged 10.6 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.0 assists in eight games (six starts).

The Bucks roster now stands at 14 players.

What does this mean? Let’s let the next few days play out and see if it has any meaning at all before we jump to any conclusions.

Jeremy Schmidt writes the Milwaukee Bucks blog Bucksketball. He founded it in January of 2009 because he hated his job. It’s like basketball, but with Bucks instead of basket. I know ... I’m sorry. He might come off as a bit negative, but I'm really not so bad. He just wants the Bucks to succeed, so he points out areas where they are coming up short. Someone has got to do it and he's ornery and opinionated enough to take on that task. He isn't sure if this should be in third person or not.

    Is this the same thing as saying we’re placing him on waivers? When I read “request waiver” it sounds like we’re trying to pick him up…years of fantasy sports did this to me… But I understand, we’re doing to get Marcin Gortat and Shannon Brown for Larry Sanders & Jon Brockman. (I’m kidding, obviously…but how sweet would that be!?!)

    I assume we are doing this to pickup someone? Right?
