The Milwaukee Bucks have requested waivers on forward Damir Markota (6-10, 225), General Manager Larry Harris announced today.

Markota appeared in 30 games with the Bucks last season and posted averages of 1.7 points and 1.0 rebound per game. A native of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Markota, 21, was assigned to Tulsa of the NBA Development League on two occasions during the 2006-07 season and averaged 10.4 points and 4.8 rebounds in 10 games for the 66ers.

Selected by San Antonio with the 59th overall pick in the 2006 NBA Draft, Markota was traded to the Bucks on June 28, 2006 for the better of Milwaukee?s two second round picks in the 2007 NBA Draft (33rd overall).
