Coverage

This may be absolutely nothing. But it may also foreshadow the team’s long term future at head coach. Scott Skiles has put his Wisconsin home up for sale.

Gery Woelfel ponders what the Bucks might do with Ersan Ilyasova, mentioning that he might be able to net $5 million per year tax free back home in Turkey. Ersan has had a rocky career as a Buck, both in performance and desire to be a part of the team, but there’s no denying his stellar play as of late. Will the Bucks let him walk like the Villanueva’s and Sessions’ of the world?

Rumors swirled that Kyrylo Fesenko was a possible mid-season signing for the Bucks to fill their gaping void at center, but Woelfel is reporting that the Bucks aren’t that interested anymore. What does that mean? MORE DREW GOODEN!

Stephen Jackson continues to verbalize his desire to be anywhere not named Milwaukee. He told CSNChicago.com that Chicago, “would be a great fit for me.”  When Coach Thibodeau was asked about Jackson, Tom replied,  “He’s a talented player, but I have enough to worry about with our team.” Does anyone want sJax? Please?

    Fesenko has averaged 8 minutes, 2.3 points and 2.0 rebounds in his four-year career.  I would rather see Sanders get those minutes than have to cut Sanders from the roster to give this guy bench time.  I have no problem with JH decision to let it go.
    Will the Bucks let Ersan walk like Villanueva?  I bet the Pistons wish they would have let Villanueva walk instead of paying him $35M for 5 years.  Anyway, there are so many factors that go into a contract negotiation and at the end of the day if Ersan can get paid the same amount to play in Turkey, then he’ll probably go.  That’s not because he hates Milwaukee (like some posts on other blogs have implied), it’s just business.
    If it is going to cost Bucks an outrageous amount to keep Ersan, then I guess they’ll have to let him go. Saying you want to trade him now for something is meaningless unless some other team actually goes to JH and makes him an offer he can’t refuse.  So far all the talk seems to be coming only from Bucks blogs  That and 25 cents will get you a cup of coffee..  
     
    Speaking of  “it’s a business”, I sure wish Jackson’s agent would find him a new home.  Maybe agent Jackson should quit sending player Jackson out to discuss any possible trades.  I thought trading him to Chicago would be prrrrrrrrrfect!
