NBA Trade Rumors: Washington Wizards called Milwaukee Bucks about Luke Ridnour


The Milwaukee Bucks aren’t going anywhere this season and that means that they could end up being sellers at the deadline. While the team isn’t actively pursuing a trade, they’re not turning away calls, as evident in reports that the Washington Wizards have called them about guard Luke Ridnour.

According to Ken Berger from CBSSports, the Washington Wizards and Sacramento Kings have both called the Bucks about possibly acquiring Ridnour at the deadline.

Several teams have called Milwaukee about point guard Luke Ridnour, including Washington and Sacramento, a league source said. The Bucks are also fielding calls about their young players, as teams are dubious that owner Herb Kohl is serious about going through the pain of a youth movement. (It’s been painful enough as it is.) But the message from the Bucks has been consistent: Barring a significant offer, their young assets are staying put.

Trading for Ridnour makes sense with what we’ve been hearing about both the Kings and Wizards as they seem to be in the market for point guards. There’s no word on actual movement, but it’s clear the Bucks may be forcibly active at the deadline.
