ST. FRANCIS, Wis. (AP) -- Bucks forward Bobby Simmons is back in the fold, nearly a year after he last participated in full practice.

Simmons says he worked hard during the off-season on strength and conditioning after having two surgeries on his right foot that sidelined him last season.

The former DePaul star has dropped 26 pounds.

Simmons signed a five-year, $47 million deal with the Bucks before the 2005-2006 season.

Simmons says he's eager to join Charlie Villanueva, first-round pick Yi Jianlian and Desmond Mason in a reworked Bucks frontcourt.
