UPDATE 7/5 10:37 a.m. -- It looks like fans' dreams of bringing former Marquette star Dwyane Wade home to Milwaukee will have to wait, at least for now.

Charles F. Gardner, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's resident Bucks reporter, announced on Twitter Tuesday that the prized free agent would no longer be meeting with Milwaukee, as had been previously reported:

But those who cheer the deer shouldn't fret - the team added two intriguing free agents last week: Matthew Dellavedova and Mirza Teletovic.
