The Bucks are expected to use a stretch provision in the collective bargaining agreement to reduce their salary cap hit over the next seven seasons, through 2022. The agreement allows a team to stretch the cap hit over double the amount of years left on the contract, plus one year. "It's hour by hour," Bucks coach Jason Kidd said of the Sanders situation after the team's practice session Wednesday night. "I haven't talked to him. We don't know which way this thing is going right now." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

The Bucks have dangled names like Ersan Ilyasova, O.J. Mayo and even big man John Henson in offers to other teams, so its clear the Bucks want to make a deal and with Sanders’ $11 million per year salary likely being stretched down to just over $2.1 million per year, the Bucks have some unexpected breathing room to take on a player that could command real money in July.

Major likely buck to be traded is? Chad Ford: Actually hearing from teams that there's a lot of interest in Ilyasova. A veteran stretch four. Could be valuable to a playoff team. But I wouldn't be surprised if the Bucks didn't do anything. They have great chemistry right now, are set up to win 45 games this season. For their young players, this experience of getting playing time and winning is huge. ESPN.com

The Milwaukee Bucks are nearing an agreement on a buyout with big man Larry Sanders, league sources told ESPN. The Bucks and Sanders, according to sources, are on course to officially part ways by week's end. Sanders likely will receive nearly half of the $33 million left on his contract after this season spread out over the next several years via the league's stretch provision. ESPN.com
