The loquacious Bucks forward was asked if he thought the Knicks would bring up his brother, who was drafted 51st last June but has been playing in the D-League with the Westchester Knicks after not being signed to the NBA roster. “He’s ready,’’ Antetokounmpo said at the Bucks practice Wednesday at O2 Arena. “I don’t think the Knicks have to lose anything. They lose 15 [straight] now. Tomorrow is going to be 16. They don’t have anything to lose. My brother could bring energy to the team and [is] hard-working, and guys from the team can see that and take something from him.’’ New York Post

Instead, Phil Jackson showed scant interest, according to a source, and now the 37-year-old Martin is with the Bucks, signed last week to reunite with his buddy, coach Jason Kidd. Martin, who played the last two seasons with the Knicks, is ready to wreck havoc on coach Derek Fisher when the teams meet Thursday at O2 Arena. “You got to ask them that, boss,’’ Martin said when asked why the Knicks didn’t pursue him. “You know that. They made that decision. It is what it is. I moved on. I went and got my surgery and did most of [the rehab] on my own. I don’t hold no grudges. I thought it would’ve been a little different. It is what it is. I’m not bitter.’’ New York Post

Sanders remains out due to personal reasons and told reporters recently he was working with the Bucks to try to get in a position where he can play again. "The only thing with Larry, he's got some personal issues we've been working with him on," Lasry said. "Hopefully things work themselves out." Sanders is not on the trip. Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

When Parker was lost for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, not much was expected from the Bucks. Yet, they've played .500 since Parker's injury and are intent on making the playoffs. "We're young. Maybe we don't know any better. But it just shows the depth of this team. … Guys have stepped in," Kidd said. "They understand how to play hard, and they understand the system. Guys get it, and they're having fun with one another. "For a young team, we're going in the right direction." USA Today Sports

The Bucks have delayed an announcement on the site and plans for a new downtown arena, but Lasry believes it will be worth the wait. "The problem is every time I get asked how much longer, it seems it should be the next 30 to 60 days," Lasry said of an announcement. "But it seems I've been saying that literally for the last three to four months. "It is just taking longer. But I do believe now it's the next 30 to 60 days." Lasry said he thinks the final plan will be something fans can get excited about. Asked if it would have a Destination Bucks feel, he said, "That's what we're trying to do."

Marc Lasry admits he has a much different feeling as an owner than in those days when he was merely a fan. The Milwaukee Bucks co-owner hasn't done a Mark Cuban explosion on any referee yet, but he can relate to the impulse and emotional investment. "I didn't realize how much more passionate you became as an owner," Lasry said Tuesday. "You're very focused. Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

"I think I was a huge fan. I didn't think it could get worse, and I think it's multiples of that. I'm always screaming. "To me it has nothing to do with the referees. You're watching, so when we make a basket, you're extremely excited. When we miss a basket, you're extremely bummed or whatever it is. "It's a lot more emotional than I thought it would be."

Ersan Ilyasova is ready to return to the Milwaukee Bucks lineup Thursday when the team plays the New York Knicks in the NBA Global Games in London. Suddenly, the Bucks power forward position will look a lot different with Ilyasova playing as a "stretch 4" again and recently signed Kenyon Martin pitching in on the front line. Ilyasova has missed 19 of the last 20 games after suffering a broken nose Dec. 2 in Cleveland and a concussion when he returned Dec. 23 against Charlotte. Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
