Reports: Bucks extend Hammond's contract

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -

The Milwaukee Bucks have reportedly extended general manager John Hammond's contract by a year. Although, it appears that will be Hammond's final season as the Bucks G.M.

Yahoo! Sports first reported the news that Milwaukee was extending Hammond's contract through the 2017-18 season. After that, Hammond is planning to transition to a consultant role with the Bucks. Milwaukee hired Justin Zanik from the Utah Jazz earlier this month as the assistant general manager. He will reportedly take over G.M. duties.

Hammond has been Milwaukee's general manager since 2008. The team has made three playoff appearances under his leadership.
