Last Minute Bucks News

It's been a long offseason for Bucks fans as we have been just waiting to see how this team would perform after a thrilling 2009-2010 campaign. And we are now less then 24 hours away from the Bucks opening tip in the 2010-11 season, coming to you live on Wednesday night in the Big Easy at 7:00 central time. Lets check out some final news and notes as we get ready for tip-off.

* The Milwaukee Bucks have extended the contracts of Scott Skiles and John Hammond to the 2012-13 season.

* Chris Douglas-Roberts will miss the first month after getting poked in the eye at practice Sunday. It was so bad it will require surgery. Look for him to return around Thanksgiving.

* No starting five has been announced yet, but my guess is this: (PG) Brandon Jennings, (SG) John Salmons, (SF) Carlos Delfino, (PF) Drew Gooden, (C) Andrew Bogut.

* That being said, Salmons and Maggette are a full go for opening game.

* Bucks had to trim the roster down to 15, so they cut Brian Skinner Monday night. That mean Jon Brockman will be part of the Milwaukee Bucks this year. Looks like the man people call the "Brockness Monster" will be wear Kurt Thomas's old number of 40.

Those are just a few quick tips for now. Check back Wednesday night/early Thursday for a recap of the Bucks opening game.
