Bucks May Release Michael Redd

by July 22, 2010

Michael Redd, who will earn $18 million next season (mostly from insurance), is unlikely to play again in Milwaukee. Will he play again in the League? From Garry Howard of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel: “John Salmons. Drew Gooden. Corey Maggette. Chris Douglas-Roberts. Keyon Dooling. Larry Sanders. These are the names of the new players added to the Milwaukee Bucks’ roster by the blossoming John Hammond, a former coach who is proving that he is well-deserving of his tailored suits and his top-of-the-franchise office. Quite simply, these are pure upgrades, moves that will help the Bucks take that giant leap from a 46-win regular season to a 50-plus victory year and a deeper run in the NBA postseason. What they really mean, however, is that we have seen the last of Michael Redd at the Bradley Center, the only remaining player with ties to the Bucks’ crew that came within one game of the NBA Finals in 2001.”
