Farewell, Charlie Villanueva

The Bucks roster continues to evolve as they head into the 2009-2010 season, and it looks like it's going to be a roster without the servies of Charlie Villanueva. The Bucks did not extend their $4.6 million qualifying offer to Skillanueva, which means he is now free to negotiate with any NBA team, and that the Bucks won't get a chance to match the offer.

Basically, this means we don't want him anymore. I get the feeling John Hammond never really wanted this guy on his roster, but he sucked it up for a year before he could let him go. I have mixed feelings about Villanueva, I guess. While I like the guy, and he did play pretty well in spots this season, I just don't think there is too much unique about his game. You can find another guy like Villanueva out there no problem, so I'm not going to argue the move. As for CV31, he seems to think he's going to land in Cleveland, so have fun I guess.

The Bucks did extend a pair of qualifying offers to two guys who I think they absolutely need to resign, Ramon Sessions and Ersan Ilyasova. We all know the deal with Sessions, but Ilysaova hasn't been in a Bucks uniform in two years. Since then, he's been playing with Regal FC Barcelona while the Bucks have hung on to his rights. Ersan could easily fill the void left by Villanueva, although he's more of a defensive guy.

All that we know is that the Bucks are nowhere near done retooling their roster for the seventh year in a row.
