Milwaukee Bucks Rumors
The Milwaukee Bucks have requested waivers on forward Jon Horford and guard Charlie Westbrook, General Manager John Hammond announced today. Horford saw six minutes of action in last night’s preseason game at Chicago, while Westbrook posted four points, three rebounds, one assist and one steal in nine minutes. Both were signed by the Bucks as free agents on Sept. 18. The Bucks roster now stands at 18 players.
Charles F. Gardner: “I’m not playing,” Parker said. “I want to wait until at least we play here (in Milwaukee) first, if anything. I want to show my loyalty. All my loyalty is in Milwaukee and I can care less about Chicago right now.”
“When I signed, it wasn’t all the way done yet, but now, they have a new stadium coming,” Monroe said. “And I saw how the fans were. We played there, been coming there for years now, multiple times a year in the division. I know what kind of fan base they have. And I talked to a couple of my former teammates in Detroit who played here before, and they had nothing but great things to say about the city and the organization. So with all of that combined, I just definitely felt I made the right decision.”
The Bucks say they’ll be the first NBA team to use an alternate court design and jerseys, building on their “Fear the Deer” motto. The alternate court will be used for four games this season, when players also will wear a new alternate uniform. The different looks were unveiled Saturday on the team website.
