The latest Milwaukee Bucks Daily is here as interest in Derrick Rose now seems to include multiple teams other than the Bucks.

In this latest edition of the Milwaukee Bucks Daily, we look at the latest rumors surrounding Derrick Rose, D.J. Wilson‘s potential, the latest business deal from a Bucks legend, and more.

While the opening two weeks of free agency saw so much talk of Derrick Rose potentially landing in Milwaukee, it now seems as if interest from the likes of the Lakers and Cavaliers could now see him playing elsewhere.
