Report: Milwaukee Bucks Trade for Jodie Meeks, Future Second Round Pick

New, comments

Milwaukee will immediately waive Meeks

NBA: Milwaukee Bucks-Media Day Milwaukee Journal Sentinel-USA T

As I was writing this, we got confirmation from Woj that the Bucks are receiving Jodie Meeks and cash in the trade, but the Bucks will waive Meeks immediately.

Praise be to those who are second round pick believers, as it appears Milwaukee will receive a future second-round pick courtesy of the Wizards.

Milwaukee is in the process of finalizing its roster, and it appears they didn’t want to stand pat with everyone they had running through this preseason. The original report from Chris Haynes below tipped us off that something was happening.

In related news, it appears we have confirmation that Tim Frazier lost the musical chairs battle for Milwaukee’s roster spot. That also means that, for now, Christian Wood and D.J. Wilson appear to be safe in those final spots. However, the impending move with Washington means that one of them could be a player who is on the way out. No word yet on if Milwaukee is sending something back to Washington, we’ll update the story if more information comes in.

UPDATE

Just wanted to offer one piece of clarification here. While we still don’t know the exact details on the second round pick’s protections (cross your fingers it’s not the dreaded top-55 protected type), it does appear the Bucks used the trade exception generated by Greg Monroe to complete the trade. Kudos to Twitter’s cap experts for parceling those details out.
