For the casual fan who didn’t watch a lot of Bucks basketball last season the four-year $44 million extension Larry Sanders got from the Milwaukee Bucks was head scratching. Who was he and why give him that much money?

Because he is one of the up-and-coming best shot blocking defensive bigs in the game and you can build something good around that.

Bucks GM John Hammond as well as Sanders himself talked about the contract and the rebuilding Bucks with the Boston Globe.
