Report: Bucks close to inking Yi
The Yi saga appears to be entering its EndGame phase. A report by ESPN says the Milwaukee Bucks are close to signing the Chinese prospect, and that Bucks GM Larry Harris believes it may happen as early as today.
Larry Harris has followed the correct hardball negotiating strategy espoused on this blogsite from Day One, and it appears as though it is about to pay off. Because of it, Yi and his handlers are close to concluding that Yi playing for the Bucks is the only sensible outcome for all parties concerned. More on this as the story develops...
Update: My specific source on this was a news update on ESPN's morning show First Take. It was reported just prior to the Stern news conference, and thus they went no further into the matter after that.
