Milwaukee Bucks Reportedly Want to Trade Drew Gooden

According to the Journal Times, Milwaukee Bucks forward Drew Gooden is once again on the trading block. (Meanwhile, the fun-loving Gooden is keeping himself busy these days by asking fans to throw opponents’ jerseys in the toilet): “If Drew Gooden is upset about being on the inactive list, he’s doing a whale of a job hiding it. The veteran power forward has said nary a negative word about his demotion. What’s more, he’s been constantly encouraging his teammates in practices and games. Sunday afternoon, after all his teammates and coaches had left the premises, Gooden spent nearly a half hour mentoring young big man Larry Sanders. ‘I’m not a selfish person and I’m not a selfish teammate,’ Gooden said. ‘I’ll do whatever I can to help the team. Right now, I’m trying to help the team vocally in any way I can.’ The Bucks don’t comment on trade speculation but the scuttlebutt around the league is the team is trying to move the 31-year-old Gooden, who is being paid $6.68 million for this season and the next two seasons as well.”

    really bad contract for someone who might not have much left in the tank. i remember thinking what r they doing when they signed him to that deal as soon as free agency started that summer. but that was the year when people were getting PAID. iso joe leading the way

    Wasnt he putting up like 12 and 8 last year? and probably around 11 and 8 for his career? Someone could use this guy

    He played well the 2nd half of last season, kind of sucks how the Bucks are treating him like this…

    Didn’t he get a triple double last year?

    I believe your correct. He would be a nice add to a championship aspiring team.
