Getting better all the time in BucksNation
Yi looks good and is finally talking, Mo Williams is close to resigning, and now it seems the Bucks are hot on the trail of the highly productive free agent SF Gerald Wallace. Gary Woelfel is reporting that Bucks GM Larry Harris has been in contact with the agent for Wallace, and other sources indicate Wallace is quite receptive to the Bucks overtones. Wallace is reportedly seeking a deal that would average around $8 million a season, a seeming bargain when one considers the Bucks had to spend over $6 million a year to acquire the much less productive SF Bobby Simmons (Harris's dogged pursuit of Wallace and the aging Desmond Mason tells you all you need to know about his opinion of that signing).
On a down note, the Pistons closed their much anticipated multi-year deal with Chauncey Billups, so the Diesel's pipe dream of bringing him to Milwaukee has ended (kidding Diesel). Also, free agent SF Andres Nocioni, a player I thought might bring some needed defensive toughness to the Bucks, has also reupped with the Chicago Bulls.
