Milwaukee Bucks Daily: Addition of Pau Gasol made official

MILWAUKEE, WI - MARCH 25: Pau Gasol /

The latest Milwaukee Bucks Daily is here as the Bucks made their addition of Pau Gasol official late Sunday afternoon after he cleared waivers following his buyout with the San Antonio Spurs.

In today’s edition of Milwaukee Bucks Daily, the Bucks’ move to add Pau Gasol is made official, we read about the approach the Bucks’ coaching staff has taken with not over-stretching their players’ workloads throughout the year and much more.

With the move to bring in Gasol now official, there’s no word yet, as of this writing, whether the 38-year-old veteran will be available to play with the Bucks closing out their West coast swing of their five-game road trip against the Phoenix Suns Monday night. Thanks to Nikola Mirotic‘s Twitter, we do at least know Gasol is with the team, though.
