The Racine Journal-Times reports that the Milwaukee Bucks are still shopping the free agent market and have three targets in mind.

Mickael Pietrus, Joel Przybilla, and C.J. Miles are on their list, with Pietrus' agent confirming that he met two weeks ago for several hours. Miles has reportedly agreed to a deal with the Cavaliers, so he's out.

Przybilla, who has battled recovery from traumatic knee injuries two years ago, is an odd fit with Milwaukee. They have Larry Sanders, Samuel Dalembert, John Henson, and Ekpe Udoh. So Przybilla wouldn't add much, and they have greater needs on the wing.

The Bucks have slow-rolled Carlos Delfino, and still have yet to re-sign him. Looking at alternatives seems to indicate he may hit the market. Pietrus would be a solid fit with great length and the occasional streak of three-point shooting. But would they want to play him enough behind Luc Richard Mbah a Moute? Or would they package him behind Monta Ellis? It's an odd roster, and the choices Milwaukee is looking at make sense on the surface, but have confusing repercussions.
