US PresswireUkrainian big man Kyrylo Fesenko tore the meniscus in his left knee last September while representing his home country in the Eurobasket tournament. Now his agent, Stu Lash, is saying that the four-year NBA veteran is ready to return, and four teams are interested.
The Journal Times reports that the Milwaukee Bucks, Atlanta Hawks, Miami Heat, and Chicago Bulls are all expressing interest in adding Fesenko, who spent his first four seasons in the league as the backup center for the Utah Jazz. There, he averaged 8:18 minutes, 2.3 points, 2 rebounds, and 0.4 blocks per game.
The Bucks aim to meet with Fesenko next week in Denver, where he has been living, the Journal Times reports.
In other Bucks news, the paper reports that forward Drew Gooden, who is averaging 12.7 points and 6.7 rebounds per game, "has been having issues with his right wrist for much of the season" and "the injury hasn't gotten better." The paper notes that he was "expected to see a hand specialist Thursday."
