"They told me they were going to take care of Mo Williams and
that they would take care of me, but they haven't," Bell said
during a telephone interview with The Associated Press. "I'm
either going to sign an offer sheet with another NBA team, or I'm
going to accept a great deal to play in Greece.
"I don't want to go back to Milwaukee. I'm really disappointed
in how this has turned out, but I don't see any way I could play
for the Bucks again because my heart just won't be in it."
Bell signed a two-year contract with Milwaukee in August 2005
after leading the Spanish League in scoring, averaging 27 points
for Breogan, the previous season. He played in all 82
regular-season games for the Bucks in 2006-07, averaging 13.5
points and 35 minutes.
The 28-year-old Flint, Mich., native helped Michigan State win
the 2000 national championship but went undrafted. Bell played for
the Phoenix Suns and Dallas Mavericks in 2001-02 and then spent
three seasons in Italy, leading all scorers in 2003-04 with
25.5-point average for Livorno.
The Bucks signed Williams, a point guard, to a six-year, $51.5
million contract in July.
