Milwaukee could be looking to add a center to its roster.
Marcin Gortat is rumored to have received some consideration from the Bucks, according to a New York Times report. However, Milwaukee isn’t expected to make a move just yet.
The East-leading Bucks are among the teams that have weighed signing free-agent center Marcin Gortat — who IS playoff-eligible for his next team — but league sources say Milwaukee, to this point has elected not to take its interest further

Gortat, 35, was waived by the Clippers on Feb. 7. Since he was released before March 1, he will be playoff eligible for his next team.
The big man averaged 5 points and 5.6 rebounds through 47 games with Los Angeles in 2018-19. He is rumored to be interested in joining the defending champion Warriors.
Milwaukee sits atop the Eastern Conference with a 47-14 record. The Bucks have won their last six games and will take on the Lakers Friday.
