Scott Skiles told Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel yesterday that he would be returning to Milwaukee next season for the final year of his contract, quieting speculation that the Bucks could seek a new coach. Here are the rest of the latest updates out of Milwaukee:
- One reason the Warriors were willing to send Monta Ellis to Milwaukee was because he wouldn't give Golden State a "firm commitment" that he wanted to be there long-term, tweets Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times.
- "Rumors still persist" that Herb Kohl would be open to selling his majority share of the Bucks and becoming a minority owner, according to Woelfel (on Twitter).
- Bringing back Skiles for 2012/13 makes sense for both the Bucks and the coach, says Michael Hunt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
- The Bucks will have room under the cap this summer to make "at least one substantial roster upgrade," Hunt adds within his piece. I think that might depend on whether or not the team re-signs Ersan Ilyasova.
