The Bucks have released Roko Ukic today. I have been following this for about a week now but haven't said anything in hopes it wouldn't happen. Ukic made it public that he was unhappy with his lack of playing time and "wanted to explore other basketball opportunities." I'm guessing this means he got an offer from a team overseas and will take it. I really can't blame him, he'll get paid more and get more PT. As far as the Bucks end goes, I believe Ukic's contract was non-guaranteed, so they cut out around $1 million this year and $1.5 next year cutting him. This leaves the team at 14 players on the roster. This also leaves an opening for Joe Alexander when he comes back (in the next few weeks) to be able to be activated. We just have to hope Ridnour or Jennings don't go down with injuries for now. This could also help us in the long run making a trade with more money available or with acquiring in a 2 for 1 or 3 for 2.

I'm sad to see Ukic go, he seemed to be a decent player, but he's 25 and has reached his potential. I don't think he'd be anything more than a borderline bench warmer for an NBA team with his size and style of play. He's too big and not quick enough to cover elite PG's and not strong enough to cover 2'.s

I like this move, as this coming summer The Bucks can use all the money they can get. This summer is the equivalent of going out of business sale for picking up basketball players. The same rationale explains why I don't think signing Alexander until he proves something is a great idea.

I don't think Alexander will play 1 minute this season. I think they are going to fill the spot in a 2 for 1 or 3 for 2 deal pretty soon.

Me too, it's the thought of him playing that seems so distant and foreign because everyone has pretty much written him out as a bust anyway. Thus, making him nothing to look forward to while injured.

I'm quite the opposite. I think he's going to come in the first game, dunk on a few heads, throw back a few shots and grab a bunch of rebounds, Shawn Marion style. He'll walk off the court with a triple double, pounding his chest yelling, "I am Joe, hear me roar!" And the era of BJ, Ersan, Joe and Andrew will begin. We'll call them the 3 Wise Men and a Flat Top.

...or we'll trade him for nothing and get some cap room that will do us no good.

Ugh.

How about the Bucks go after Butler or Jamison from the Wizards?

Should get Brian Butch, especially with only one white guy on the active roster.
