Michael Redd Retires from the NBA

Former All-Star forward Michael Redd’s NBA career has come to an end — Redd will officially announce the decision in Milwaukee tomorrow night during the Bucks/Cavs game. From the press release: “Redd will address the crowd at the BMO Harris Bradley Center between the first and second periods. Redd was drafted by the Bucks with the 43rd overall selection in the 2000 NBA Draft and went on to play 11 seasons in Milwaukee, where he averaged 20.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game. Redd’s name ranks among the all-time Bucks career leaders in the following categories: points (4th – 11,554); scoring average (5th – 20.0 ppg); games (7th, 578); minutes (5th, 19,334); field goals made (7th, 4,063); field goals attempted (4th, 9,045); three-point field goals made (2nd, 1,003); three-point field goals attempted (1st, 2,619); three-point field goal percentage (8th, .383); free throws made (2nd, 2,425); free throws attempted (3rd, 2,887); and free throw percentage (10th, .840). [...] Redd was part of three postseason appearances with the Bucks and named as a reserve on the 2004 Eastern Conference All-Star team. He was a member of Team USA’s 12-man roster for the FIBA Americas Championships in 2007 and a member of the Gold Medal-winning Team USA squad at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.”

    Retired number for the Bucks? 6 straight seasons of 21+ ppg is nothing to sneeze at.

    Surprised the Knicks didn’t sign him for the MLE. We love geriatrics.

    Always sad to see a good career end on such a sour note. Definitely was a big fan of the guy.

    Do you get into the HOF if you get a gold medal?

    He was a true class act! He had a decent year in PHX and I was stunned no one else gave him a contract last year!? He will be great on NBATV or Turner sports in general.
