RU: Alexander headed to D-League

8

Scott Schroeder at Ridiculous Upside reports that Joe Alexander will be joining the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, the Bucks' D-League affiliate. I'm guessing the party line will be that this gives Joe a chance to work back into shape and get major minutes on the court as he comes back from his hamstring injury. But mostly it just seems another step in Alexander's exile from Milwaukee. This could certainly be a good thing for the development of his game, and you could make a good case he should have spent some time in the D-League a year ago. But with his 10/11 option already declined and the Bucks now unable to watch him on a daily basis, the "developing him for the future" argument seems a bit hollow.
