The Milwaukee Bucks' quest for the middle of the Eastern Conference continues, as they brought back Zaza Pachulia on a reported three-year, $15 million contract. Pachulia spent a year in Milwaukee before bolting to Atlanta in 2005, where he spent the last eight years. Now, he's back.Why is he back? I'm not really sure, to be honest.

The Bucks really didn't need to make this signing, both because it doesn't make sense with their current roster and because it ties up cap flexibility for a team that really should be embracing a full-fledged rebuilding effort.Brew Hoop has more analysis of the Pachulia signingThe minutes crunch right now is obvious. Milwaukee already has two incumbent starters in

Larry Sanders and Ersan Ilyasova, a promising youngster in John Henson who needs more minutes, a solid reserve in Ekpe Udoh and a bigger small forward in Luc Richard Mbah a Moute who can play the 4 in small lineups on the roster. Those five players sopped up all the minutes last year, rendering Samuel Dalembert, the fifth big man, unnecessary. Now, barring roster moves.

Pachulia is the fifth big, all for the decent price of $5 million per season. Perhaps a trade of Ilyasova or Udoh erases the logjam, but why did the Bucks need to rush to sign Pachulia before that trade happened?Pachulia isn't a bad player, of course, but he also doesn't have a lot of upside. At 29, you pretty much know what you're getting from
