After frantically searching for a trade partner over the past few days, the Chicago Bulls have finally agreed to a deal with the Milwaukee Bucks involving shooting guard John Salmons.
The Bulls have traded swingman John Salmons to the Milwaukee Bucks for Francisco Elson and Kurt Thomas.
Both Elson and Thomas have expiring contracts. Salmons held a $5.8 million player option this summer and trading him guarantees that the Bulls will have enough money to offer a maximum contract to a big-time free agent this summer.
Salmons was in the midst of a disappointing season with the Bulls, averaging just 12.7 points per game on 42% shooting.
