Michael Redd Out Until February

by

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.

    Do you think Michael Redd could rehab his worth as a role player? I assume he can still make open shots. I’d think he could help the team more than hurt it if his responsibilities were properly limited.

      Oh yeah. He’d actually fit in nicely with the Heat. He’s got good shooting percentages from long range. He’s just never been a #1 guy. The Bucks dumped a lot of time and money into him.
