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."
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.
The Milwaukee Bucks have signed the 31st selection of the 2014 NBA Draft, Damien Inglis, to a multi-year contract.
A native of Cayenne in French Guiana, Inglis played last season with Roanne as a rookie in France’s top league, Pro A, where he averaged 4.6 points and 3.6 rebounds in 27 games. Inglis grabbed a career-best 11 rebounds vs. Strasbourg and scored in double figures in three straight games in December. 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.
The Milwaukee Bucks have been awarded the contract of guard Kendall Marshall on a waiver claim.
Marshall was waived by the Los Angeles Lakers on July 18.
Appearing in 54 games for the Lakers in 2013-14, Marshall, 22, averaged 8.0 points, 8.8 assists and 2.9 rebounds per contest. In his best stretch of the season in January, he tallied at least 10 assists and scored at least 10 points in five consecutive games. He ranked fifth in the NBA in assist-to-turnover ratio (3.18) and shot a career-high 39.9 percent from the 3-point arc. Prior to being called up by the Lakers, Marshall appeared in seven games for the Delaware 87ers of the NBA D-League and averaged 19.4 points, 9.6 assists and 4.7 rebounds.
