  • Bucks give Bogut how much?!?!?

    I think for a 23 year old 15 and 10 is solid #s.

    72.5M? No, but what else was Milwaukee gonna spend money on? Might as well lock up the franchise center.

      MILWAUKEE (AP)—Milwaukee Bucks center Andrew Bogut will sign a five-year, $72.5 million extension later this week, his agent said Wednesday.

      Bogut, the top overall pick in the 2005 draft, was expected to sign the extension Friday, agent David Bauman said.

      The agreement was first reported Wednesday by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on its Web site.

      Bucks spokesman Dan Smyczek also confirmed Wednesday that there was an agreement on a deal.

      “He’s thrilled,” Bauman told The Associated Press. “He feels like Milwaukee really stepped up and demonstrated to him he’s a valued member of this team.”

      The signing should also silence critics who feel the team hasn’t shown a commitment to winning, Bauman said. The hiring of Scott Skiles as coach and the trade for Richard Jefferson demonstrated to Bogut that the team was making a push to be competitive.

      “These moves show Andrew this team is committed to winning now,” Bauman said.

      The extension does not affect the nearly $7 million Bogut is owed for the upcoming season, the final year of his rookie contract.

      Despite the Bucks’ struggles in the past two seasons, Bogut indicated he wanted to stay with the team.

      He played in 78 games last season, averaging 14.3 points and 9.8 rebounds.

      Bogut is expected to begin practicing with the Australia Olympic team on Tuesday. Bauman said the center hoped to get an extension completed before then, but he wasn’t using that date as a deadline for a deal.

      Wednesday was the first day for NBA free agents and players seeking extensions to sign contracts.


      I was just about to post this. Wow, that is defintely overpaying him.

        Bogut's underachieving.

        The Bucks NEVER get him the ball. He has to create his own and he's not the type of player.

        Plus, centers are hard to come by nowadays

          I think he's a very solid big man. You know that even 4pt and 5reb big men are always the most sought after in free agency. If you can find someone 6'11" or bigger than can be okay every team wants him. I don't disagree with this move at all as the Bucks might be on track to compete in the playoffs

            I saw that too. The salaries in the NBA are ridiculous.

              All things considered, the Bucks did the right thing. Good bigs are hard to come by, especially a young guy with a future. Now, they need to put a decent team around him.

                  Bucks don't have Derrick Rose, therefore the Bulls are further ahead.

                    The Bulls have Vinny Del Nigro and Joakim Noah..therefore, they're not further ahead of the Bucks.

                      He has improved every year I've seen him play (can't say that about the team since he was drafted - doh!) . I'm glad they made that move. Hopefully Hammond will continue to rebuild this mess we have...

                        If I suddenly turn into a good athlete, or magically grow a foot and a half from my current 5'9" frame, I'm hiring Bogut's agent.
                        This is my signature.

                          I hope we get rid of Noah I hated him in college and hated him even more when the Bulls drafted him... I'm still depressed over trading away Aldridge I loved that guy

                            Bogut is very impressive for a low vertical whit boy and he has great numbers to back it up. He has always he will improve just as he has every year of his career.
