According to the Racine-Journal Times, the Bucks are waiting to talk to Lionel Hollins for their head coaching vacancy after Memphis' season ends.
Hollins entered the season on the hot seat and has now been linked to just about every open coaching job in the league, so we're confident he'll be employed next season whether it's in Memphis or elsewhere. The Bucks have not clearly identified what they're targeting in a new head coach and there is no timetable for a hire.
Andrew Bogut (ankle) revealed that the "mental and physical pain" he felt over "the last two or three weeks was getting worse and worse."
At this point, it's fair to question whether or not Bogut will ever be able to remain healthy for the duration of a full season. "I managed it every day. Every day was a battle, basically, after April," Bogut said. "Every day I had to come in early to get treatment, just to get it right just enough to get back on the court. My whole playoff campaign was that. Some days it worked and some days it didn't." Bogut did say that he's looking forward to using the offseason to get his "ankle right," but we've heard that from the big man previously. Fantasy owners should monitor Bogut's health closely.
The Raptors remain interested in trading Andrea Bargnani, according to president Bryan Colangelo.
"I still would say there's value in Andrea as a player," said Colangelo. "I get the fact that a change of scenery is probably best for all sides. I've publicly acknowledged that but, again, the new guy is going to have to decide how to handle it and there are a few options." Colangelo is referencing the new general manager who has yet to be hired, and we'd bet Bargnani starts next season elsewhere. It's hard to see the Raptors getting anything of real value in return for the former No. 1 overall pick.
