Next time the Milwaukee Bucks are together, they might need name tags.

A day after being swept out of their first playoff appearance in three years, the Bucks began scattering Monday for what is sure to be a chaotic offseason. Luc Mbah a Moute, Larry Sanders, Ersan Ilyasova and rookie John Henson are the only key players under contract for next season. J.J. Redick and Mike Dunleavy are unrestricted free agents. Brandon Jennings also is expected to test the market. Jennings is a restricted free agent, so the Bucks can match any offer for him.

Monta Ellis has an $11 million player option. While that's a lot of money to pass up, he could be swayed if someone offers a multi-year deal.
