Bucks to acquire Meeks, pick from Wizards

Jodie Meeks will be traded from the Wizards to the Bucks and then hit the waiver wire, according to reports.

The Washington Wizards have traded guard Jodie Meeks, a second-round pick and cash to the Milwaukee Bucks, according to a report from ESPN.

The Bucks, who are trading second-rounder back to the Wizards, intend to waive Meeks, ESPN added.

The cash will likely be used to cover Meeks’ salary, so the Bucks will be getting a second-rounder for nothing.

Meanwhile, the Wizards will now be off the hook for Meeks’ $3.4 million hit on their salary cap. Theycan now potentially replace Meeks with a player who earns the league minimum and save some cash.
