The Bucks Are About To Reward Larry Sanders With Some Serious Coin

The Milwaukee Bucks' offseason has been a complete boondoggle. According to Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, the Bucks are closing in on a four-year, $44 million dollar extension with 24-year-old big man Larry Sanders. While the addition of O.J. Mayo alleviates some of their concerns, their top two returning scorers are Mike Dunleavy and Ersan Ilyasova. Sanders finished second in the league in blocked shots last season, and while this bodes well for their interior defense, their offensive options still look bleak. Or maybe that's the point?

Milwaukee may not fit most stars' ideal small market aspirations, but for Andrew Wiggins, the Cream City is looking like his home in 2014. None of that is guaranteed, but at least now Bucks fans know that Larry Sanders will still be around for the foreseeable future.
