Milwaukee Bucks Links: Weekend Edition


HoopsHype:  Carlos Delfino remains loyal to the Bucks, but says that he’ll look at other options if the lockout is not resolved soon.

“I’m itching to play and compete. I was confident there would be a solution (to the lockout) that would allow me to return to the States and play. But the way things are right now, I probably need to seriously look at my options elsewhere because, quite probably, we may not have any other option.

“There were talks with teams, but it’s all pretty dead now. After speaking with Siena, we have not received any other offer. There’s not a lot of movement right now. I’m going to ask my agent to see what’s out there. Teams like Siena intrigue me because they are ambitious teams, but we’ll see what happens in the next few days. If I sign a contract, it would have to be one with an NBA out. My wish is to stay with the Bucks. They made me feel wanted and have really taken care of me. I can only be grateful to them.”

WJBC.com:  Shaun Livingston affiliates himself with the Central Illinois Drive of the Premier Basketball League, but stops short of committing to play.

“I’m here to really get behind the team as far as marketing and really getting the team off the ground. It’s the inaugural year, so they’re really looking for some support.”

(On the chance of him of playing in the PBL:)  “It’s a possibility. I just have to weigh my options once the time comes,” he said. “I’m optimistic about the NBA salvaging the season, but if it doesn’t happen then there’s always the possibility that I could come back here and play.”

Pro Basketball Talk:  Rob Mahoney skewers Brandon Jennings for setting a very modest goal for next season.   I sincerely hope that part of this comment — from an ESPN live chat — was made tongue-in-cheek.

Steve (Orlando):

     Go Bucks! How many hours a week do you, if at all, practice your 15 foot jump shot. Thanks.

Brandon Jennings  (3:05 PM):

     Actually since the lockout, I’ve been in Baltimore working for 3 months straight. I’m going to shoot over 40% this year. This whole three months of the lockout, I’ve been working out 5 days a week in Baltimore.
