    Do you have inside info that we're not trading him? Harris said that he doesn't want to trade him, but if Mo goes we might get better offers that include a PG. Maybe Devin Harris and another player from the Mavs.

    Bell? I wouldn't feel good having him be our starting PG for the entire season. I mean there is a reason why we traded for Earl Boykins.

      If Yi does not sign willing with Milwaukee then commissioner David Stern will step in and FORCE Yi to honor the drafting by Milwaukee.

      As far as trading for Earl Boykins it was becuase they got a great deal from a Denver team that was clearing cap and Boykins was a better PG than Steve Blake. Plus during that time frame Michael Redd was battling injuries so they would not have been able to move Charlie to PG.

        If you need a PG, your going to have to deal with the cards you have. Yi possible being one of them.

        We traded for Boykins because Mo Williams went down and Steve Blake didn't fit our offense. If they had confidence in Bell, then why wasn't he the starter the rest of the way? Clearing cap was a bonus - which we didn't expect to get when we started the year. Bell is a role player and spot starter at best.

          We will not move a young big man with huge potential like Yi Jianlian for a PG. You keep the bigs that you have especially when they are as talented as Yi. I could see us signing Derek Fisher as a potential option b/c he was release from the Jazz due to his daughter's health problems and I know that the city of Milwaukee has some great specialist there and it could be a possible destination for Fisher.

            You never know what will happen with Yi. Derek Fisher is moving his family to the best care center to treat his daughter. That won't be in Milwaukee. Most likely on the west coast. Who knows if he'll even play this year?

              Milwaukee has the Children's Hospital and many other neurological specialist that are nationally respect so don't be overly suprised if he does come.

                • Now this is just awesome news:


                  Yi Jianlian has not said yet if he will join the Milwaukee Bucks, after the team selected him with the sixth overall pick in the June 28 draft.

                  But Chinese fans are telling him to sign with the Bucks. Results of an online poll in the China Daily showed 68% of 9,000 respondents want Yi to play for Milwaukee.

                  Also quoted in the newspaper was former national team coach Qian Chenghai, according to an Associated Press report.

                  "Fegan will hamper Yi's future," the coach said of Los Angeles-based agent Dan Fegan. "I don't think Yi refused to join the Bucks; it is Fegan who doesn't want him to join.

                  "We don't want to see Yi destroy his reputation in the NBA and return to the Chinese Basketball Association. That's horrible."

                  Yi and the Chinese national team were to play against the New York Knicks squad tonight in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. Team China went 1-2 in its first three games in summer league play, with Yi sinking the winning bank shot in a game Sunday against Cleveland.

                  The Bucks have invited Yi to visit Milwaukee after the Chinese team's summer league schedule ends. General manager Larry Harris hand-delivered a letter from Bucks owner Herb Kohl to the 7-foot power forward in a one-hour meeting on Thursday in Las Vegas.

                  • Like we've known all along it's the agent and not Yi himself

                    • The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel is reporting that point guard Mo Williams is leaning toward re-signing with the Bucks on a four- or five-year deal. Williams appears to be torn about whether to take the money from the Bucks, or give up some duckets to join forces with Shaq and D-Wade in Miami. Obviously, the route through Miami probably gives him a better shot at a title, but all indications are that he will take the money and run the Bucks.

                        God I hope so. It would really be the best move for him. Miami's old and the window is very small, the Bucks on the otherhand, could really build something and keep it going for a while.

                        • Day-long negotiations pushed the Milwaukee Bucks closer to a deal with free agent point guard Mo Williams, but no final agreement was reached today.

                          Sources indicated the Bucks have offered a six-year, $51 million deal to Williams, increasing their offer from a five-year, $42 million contract.

                          "We're making good progress," Bucks general manager Larry Harris said. "Negotiations are progressing well, and we're optimistic. We still have some details to work out."

                          The unrestricted free agent has received a five-year offer worth about $31 million from the Miami Heat, the maximum Miami is able to spend since it exceeds the league's salary cap. Several other teams also have expressed interest in Williams, including the New York Knicks and Indiana Pacers, but would need a sign-and-trade deal to acquire him.

                          If the 6-foot-1 Williams does sign with the Bucks, it will solidify the team's backcourt situation. It would give Milwaukee a high-octane combination featuring Williams and shooting guard Michael Redd, the fifth-leading scorer in the league last season.

                          "We talked and some progress was made," said Williams' agent, Mark Bartelstein, regarding his conversations with the Bucks. "We're working toward some things."

                          Bartelstein said he hoped a final resolution would come early next week.

                          Last weekend, Williams met with Miami President and coach Pat Riley and heard the Heat's pitch.

                          Williams met one-on-one with Bucks owner Herb Kohl on Monday to hear Milwaukee's offer, and Williams spent Tuesday consulting with Bartelstein. Negotiations continued on Wednesday and Thursday, as both the Bucks and Heat waited to hear a final decision from Williams.

                          It appeared the Bucks and Williams were much closer to an agreement after Friday's talks.

                          Williams shot 44.6% from the field and 85.5% from the free throw line last season and averaged career highs with 17.1 points, 4.8 rebounds and 6.1 assists in 68 games. He took over as the team's starting point guard last season after the departure of T.J. Ford in a June 2006 trade to Toronto.

                          The Bucks originally signed Williams to a three-year deal in the summer of 2004, after his rookie year with the Utah Jazz. Williams made less than $2 million last season, in the final year of that contract.

                          Williams is the top free-agent point guard remaining on the market. On Wednesday, Detroit's Chauncey Billups signed a four-year, $46 million guaranteed deal, averaging 11.5 million per year, with a fifth year at a team option for $14 million.
