In a stroke of unassumingly good luck, the Milwaukee Bucks will be without the services of Michael Redd until at least February 2011. Redd, once considered a good enough reason to allow Ray Allen to leave town, and a franchise player for the Bucks, averaged just 12 point per game last year on 35% shooting. Though a 20+ point per game scorer for six seasons with the Bucks, Redd has not played a full season since 2003-2004. His injuries and giant salary have been a weight tossed around the franchises’ neck. It’s no coincidence that with Redd out most of last year, the Bucks posted their best season since Redd became a starter. His expiring contract ($18 million left) will be a nice bargaining chip for the Bucks as the trade deadline approaches in February 2011, right when he is scheduled to be back.
