The Milwaukee Bucks didn't advance to the playoffs last season and owner Herb Kohl wasn't happy. He vowed the Bucks would turn things around this season, but, with the season nearing its halfway point, that hasn't remotely occurred.
Some NBA officials and league insiders are convinced Kohl has his henchmen looking for possible replacements for GM Larry Harris. Not surprisingly, one of the names prominently being mentioned is Doug Collins, currently a broadcaster for TNT.
If not Collins, Kohl would have more than passing interest in hiring long-time NBA executive Rick Sund, who began his career with the Bucks and still has ties with some of their officials. Sund was fired last year as the Seattle SuperSonics GM.
