Larry Sanders Rumors: Has Bucks star hit his prime yet?

The Milwaukee Bucks aren’t a team that has been fun to watch lately but that could all change in the near future. After securing the No. 2 overall pick and Jabari Parker this summer, the Bucks are an exciting young team to watch all of a sudden and their assets are all across the board.

In addition to the young players the Bucks have added in the last two drafts, the future of center Larry Sanders remains bright, as he’s on the rise with the Bucks and could be in for a huge season this year. Lange Greene from Basketball Insiders believes that Larry Sanders hasn’t yet reached his prime yet and will have a big season in 2014-15.

Sanders, 25, still hasn’t reach his prime and the struggles seem to be tied more to immaturity than physical talent. The Bucks need a strong bounce back campaign from Sanders who, if healthy and focused, should be in the Defensive Player of the Year award race at season’s end.

Sanders has work to do, but the Bucks know they have something special in him. They held off trading him at the deadline last year despite being able to possibly get a first-round pick for him in a draft where such a thing was a premium. But Sanders is still in Milwaukee and the Bucks are hoping that their bet will pay off with a big year from Sanders.
