Chicago Bulls Trade John Salmons To Milwaukee Bucks

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.

From K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune:

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.
