Milwaukee Bucks Rumors
Instead of climbing walls at the Bucks’ practice facility south of Milwaukee, though, Parker just stood against one and outlined his vision with a thousand game stare. “I’m looking long-term,” said the product of Chicago’s Simeon High and Duke University, the No. 2 pick in the 2014 Draft. “I really don’t want to risk coming back and lingering on if I’m not ready. I just want to be as productive as possible. There’s no use in me playing if I can’t contribute the way I want to.”
“We don’t know,” coach Jason Kidd said when asked about a timetable. “We’re going to take it week by week — for us, it’s day by day but at the end of the week we’ll see how he feels. We’ll continue to keep with the game plan of loading and giving him more things to do, and see how his body responds to it. So far his body has been great.”
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.”
