It is always exciting when anything shows up on the ESPN Insider Rumors regarding the Bucks and this morning there were a couple of items.
Salmons officially opted out of the contract. No big surprise to any Bucks fan. Will they try to retain him? Will he consider Milwaukee? The report mentions the Bucks want to retain him but mention nothing regarding his interest.
The Bucks must decide by tonight if they want to keep Carlos Delfino and his $3.5 million salary for next season or waive him and pay $500,000.
Everything I have read states the Bucks do want to retain Delfino which is a good thing.
CDR was interviewed by JSonline and is very happy with the fresh start he can get in Milwaukee. He also mentioned “Fear the Dear” which I found interesting. I like his competitiveness and hope he is a willing defender, if he can do that he will contribute.
“I like this team, and I like the whole Fear the Deer movement,” Douglas-Roberts told the Journal Sentinel. “And I’m a part of it now. It’s a 360 from where I was last year. And I’m just looking forward to coming here on a clean slate. I’m ready.”
“It was very tough because I’m a fierce competitor, and I want to play,” Douglas-Roberts added. “I really didn’t understand why I wasn’t playing. I learned a lot last year. I learned that everything that’s true doesn’t need to be said. Just try to stay out of the way, even when things aren’t going right. Try to keep a cool head. But I’m glad it happened in my second year, and I’m glad I got to move on from it.”
