Restricted free-agent guard Charlie Bell said Saturday that he does not want to return to the Milwaukee Bucks this season.
``They told me they were going to take care of Mo Williams and that they would take care of me, but they haven't,'' Bell said during a telephone interview with The Associated Press. ``I'm either going to sign an offer sheet with another NBA team, or I'm going to accept a great deal to play in Greece.
``I don't want to go back to Milwaukee. I'm really disappointed in how this has turned out, but I don't see any way I could play for the Bucks again because my heart just won't be in it.''
Bell signed a two-year contract with Milwaukee in August 2005 after leading the Spanish League in scoring, averaging 27 points for Breogan, the previous season. He played in all 82 regular-season games for the Bucks in 2006-07, averaging 13.5 points and 35 minutes.
The 28-year-old Flint, Mich., native helped Michigan State win the 2000 national championship but went undrafted. Bell played for the Phoenix Suns and Dallas Mavericks in 2001-02 and then spent three seasons in Italy, leading all scorers in 2003-04 with 25.5-point average for Livorno.
The Bucks signed Williams, a point guard, to a six-year, $51.5 million contract in July.
