Milwaukee Bucks Rumors
Alex Kennedy: The Hawks, Nets, Bucks, Knicks, Magic and Bulls have each shown some level of interest in unrestricted FA Shabazz Muhammad, sources confirm.
New York Knicks Director of Pro Player Personnel Mark Hughes has interviewed for the Milwaukee Bucks’ assistant general manager opening, per league sources. Hughes, a veteran executive with the Knicks organization since 2007, also interviewed for the Atlanta Hawks GM position earlier in the offseason. He has been one of the key figures in the Knicks’ recent draft success, which includes Kristaps Porzingis, Willy Hernangomez, the recently re-signed Tim Hardaway Jr., Channing Frye and Danilo Gallinari.
Jeff Zillgitt: While there’s mutual interest between the Bucks and Derrick Rose, no meeting is scheduled for now, I’m told.
While Monroe was in an upbeat mood on Friday and seemed genuinely pleased to be back with the Bucks, he knows he is still the subject of considerable trade conjecture. Some NBA officials said Milwaukee is still clearly receptive to moving Monroe. “I’d like to stay but that’s up to them,’’ said Monroe, referring to the Bucks’ front office.
According to league sources, the 39-year-old Terry, who gave the Bucks some quality leadership and 3-point shooting last season, has drawn interest from some other teams. An official with a Western Conference playoff-caliber team, who requested anonymity, confirmed his team is contemplating extending Terry a contract offer.
