Bucks Expect To Keep Larry Sanders Part Of Future Plans

Larry Sanders missed most of the 2013-14 season due to injuries, but the Milwaukee Bucks still believe in the center as part of their future plans.

Sanders will start his four-year extension this season.

"Absolutely. Yeah, yeah. Larry is in our future plans," assistant GM David Morway said. "We are hopeful that this year Larry gets back to being the basketball player that he was two years ago. He is a defensive presence and a game changer on the court.

"So when you have his length along with Giannis, Jabari Parker, John Henson and then Zaza Pachulia, Damien Inglis, who is very long, and if you play Khris Middleton at the two... We are a fairly long team. We've got good experience with OJ Mayo, Jerryd Bayless... And we like Kendall Marshall. So we are excited for next year."

Elijah Millsap Signs Non-Guaranteed Deal With Bucks

Free agent forward Elijah Millsap has signed a non-guaranteed deal to attend training camp with the Milwaukee Bucks, his agent Daniel Hazan told RealGM.

Millsap, the younger brother of NBA All-Star Paul Millsap, had an impressive stint with the Philadelphia 76ers’ entry in the NBA's July summer league — averaging 11 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.8 steals per game.

Millsap, 27, finished his collegiate career as a junior at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and went undrafted in 2010.

The 6-foot-6 swingman previously signed two NBA contracts, with the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2010 and Los Angeles Lakers in 2011, but has played most of the past four seasons in the NBA D-League.

He began his career at INSEP in France and averaged 10.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists over three seasons from 2010-13.

Inglis competed in the 2014 Nike Hoop Summit and has played for France in the U18, U17 and U16 European Championships.

Bucks Expected To Soon Sign Damien Inglis

Damien Inglis expected to be a first round pick before he broke his foot in a workout in Oklahoma City Thunder.

Inglis was drafted 36th overall by the Milwaukee Bucks.

"I was surprised but I was so happy for that," Inglis said of being chosen by Milwaukee. "The Bucks are a young team, and I'm so glad to be part of this project."

Inglis will be in training camp with the Bucks.

Inglis has a 7-3 wingspan and exhibits good footwork, and scouts believe he can be a quality defender in the NBA.

"My game is all about being versatile," Inglis said. "I try to be an all-around player.

"My first strength might be rebounding. Defense, passing the ball. That's the stuff I can bring to a team right now.

"I've got to work on decision-making, my shooting game. I'm in some good hands. I've got coach (Jason) Kidd and the Bucks organization."

Inglis has not signed a contract yet but said he expects to do that relatively soon. He will return to France before coming back to Milwaukee in late August or early September.

"Then I will start playing basketball, finally, after a summer without playing," Inglis said. "I miss basketball."
