The Milwaukee Bucks were hearing Larry Sanders’ name tossed around in trade rumors earlier this month, but a pre-All-Star Break injury put the kibosh on those talks and it may have also put the kibosh on Sanders’ season. While the Bucks center is expected to miss at least a month, Bucks reporter Andrew Gruman is hearing not so positive things about Sanders’ return in 2014.
Larry Drew says he thinks Larry Sanders can’t do anything basketball related for six weeks. Not a good sign for his return this year. #Bucks

Sanders name coming up in trade rumors seemed to make him a known name in other fan bases but it always seemed unlikely that the Bucks would deal him. His injury ended all talks but the team didn’t want him to miss the rest of the season.
That seems likely at this point, but not official. Either way, Sanders won’t be returning to action any time soon which means that even more so than before, Bucks fans are free to flip — a million points to the person that gets that reference.
