Report: Bucks to let Ekpe Udoh become unrestricted free agent
Big man Ekpe Udoh was reportedly told by Milwaukee that he would not receive a qualifying offer.
Milwaukee Bucks big man Ekpe Udoh will not receive a qualifying offer, and thus will become an unrestricted free agent at midnight, according to Yahoo Sports' Marc Spears:

Udoh also recently changed agents -- he will be represented by Michael Silverman and Brandon Grier of Athlete Management Group, according to Sam Amick of USA Today.
While he only averaged 3.3 points and 3.5 rebounds per game last season in Milwaukee, Udoh could be a solid value signing. He has never been much of a scorer at the NBA level, but is a smart one-on-one and team defender, able to protect the rim, contain pick-and-rolls and switch onto smaller players. He would likely look a lot better on a contending team than he did with the Bucks.
