The Milwaukee Bucks and Chicago Bulls finalized a deal this morning that will bring 6’6 guard John Salmons to Milwaukee. In return, the Bucks will send second-year forward Joe Alexander and 5th year forward Hakim Warrick to Chicago.
Alexander was the 8th overall pick by the Bucks in the 2008 draft, but has been a disappointment. Alexander has been playing with the Fort Wayne franchise in the NBA Development League.
Salmons helped the Bulls reach the playoffs last season after arriving in a trade with Sacramento. The Bucks are now hoping Salmons will be able to help get them into the playoffs this year.
