BUCKS TO OFFER TEAGUE?
Perhaps the Milwaukee Bucks are growing weary of Brandon Jennings’ demands.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinal‘s Charles F. Gardner is reporting that “Bucks officials not commenting on whether an offer sheet has been tendered to Atlanta Hawks guard Jeff Teague.”
Usually, there’s always a reason behind the “no comment” comment. Are they preparing to offer Teague an offer sheet? Perhaps.
It was just two days ago that it was reported that Jennings was demanding upwards of $12 million per year. That led to the rumor that the Bucks were interested in Teague.
This could be the first domino in the Teague for Jennings sign-and-trade deal that is looking very realistic right now.
FARMAR BACK IN LA
ESPNLA.com’s Dave McMenamin reported yesterday that Jordan Farmar agreed to return to the Los Angeles Lakers on a one-year, veteran’s minimum deal. Although, he must negotiate a buyout with his Turkey team first before it becomes official.
“They knew about my deal overseas and really didn’t push it earlier because they didn’t think I’d be willing to give up that guaranteed money I had over there,” Farmar said in a phone interview with ESPNLosAngeles.com. “I wanted to be back in the NBA, but more importantly, back with the Lakers. This is the only situation I would have taken a minimum deal with.”
“I’ve been a Laker since I was born,” Farmar said. “I grew up a Laker fan, so regardless of where I am or who I’m playing for, or what I’m doing in life, I’m always going to stay connected to what’s going on here [in Los Angeles].”
Farmar averaged 13.8 points, while shooting 48 percent from the field during his two season in the Turkish league.
