Bell mulling over future with BucksWisconsin Sports

MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee Bucks’ guard Charlie Bell is not sure if he’ll have a role with the team next season.
Bell saw his playing time diminish at the end of March – but because the Bucks were playing well, he said he didn’t want to press the issue and bring it up with the coaching staff. He only played in three of the seven post-season contests against Atlanta, and was held scoreless in a total of eight minutes. Bell was not activated for Sunday’s Game-Seven, saying he overslept for both a team meeting and the team bus from their Atlanta hotel to Philips Arena.
Bell started 39 games for Milwaukee in the regular season, averaging six-and-a-half points in about 23 minutes. He said he felt like he was playing well – and nobody told him why he slipped out of the rotation. Bell says he loves Milwaukee wants to play for the Bucks. And he and his agent will talk to Coach Scott Skiles and general manager John Hammond to find out what his role might be for next year. He says his immediate future is up to them. Bell has two years left on his current contract, for around four-million-dollars a year.
