So Long, Larry.

It's believed that Herb Kohl was approached recently by Larry Harris asking the senator for a determination on his future with the Bucks. Kohl promptly fired him.

Maybe it wasn't quite that abrupt, but nobody would blame Kohl if it had been. Harris was in the final year of a contract that expires on June 30 of this year. His tenure as the Bucks general manager lasted a little under five years.

At best, Harris was the victim of a handful of big contract signings that frankly didn't work out. That kind of thing can happen to any team. It happened to George Karl (remember Anthony Mason?) At worst, he was simply in over his head, destined to take an annual early summer vacation to the NBA lottery.

Seeing Larry Harris go is somewhat bittersweet. He was with the organization for a long time. His ol' man with the organization for a long time. But the fact remains, the team needs to do a little house cleaning. So Long, Larry. You won't be the last to go.

I hope the Bucks can get a decent draft pick.
