Breaking News: John Salmons Traded To The Bucks

Earlier tonight, we reported that the Bulls were holding John Salmons out of tonight’s game against the Knicks in anticipation of a trade. According to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, that trade has now consummated in the form of Salmons being shipped to Milwaukee in return for Kurt Thomas and Francisco Elson.

We knew that the Bucks were up to something, with the most likely player being shipped out to a playoff team being Thomas. This trade definitely helps sure up the Bulls in the front court, and makes you think that they might be parting ways with either Tyrus Thomas and/or Brad Miller in the next 18 hours. It also brings in another scorer at the guard position for the Bucks, something that they’ve been missing in Michael Redd‘s absence.

What are your thoughts on this trade?

    The Bucks can they release Jennings to a basketball team. Worse team on paper in the league. Who’s next Bruce Bowen or Trevor Ariza. Hawks need Jennings. Bibby,Teague,& Marvin for Bj & Delfino. Bj save yourself. I found a team worse than the Knicks.

    If the Bulls can get Mcgrady then they become more attractive to Dwade. They could package Tyrus in a deal to get a low post player for next year

    It’s a solid move on the Bulls end because they have enough wing players with Deng stepping up. They basically got two solid veterans who won’t hurt the locker room while waiting for the 20 million dollar sweepstakes
