Lakers to acquire Redd from Bucks


The Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Lakers are nearing a deal that would send guard Michael Redd, and center Dan Gadzuric to the Lakers for guard Sasha Vujacic, forward Luke Walton, and center Chris Mihm.

The Bucks feel they will not be able to keep Redd after the end of this season, so acquiring three young players make sense. Gadzuric who played college ball in southern California at UCLA would fit the Lakers offense, as would Redd, who would probably come off the bench, or the Lakers could move Bryant to the small forward spot.

Leading more credence to this report is the fact that many people involved in the Lakers organization have said that the Lakers will make a trade before the trade deadline, and that player acquired would be a high profile player. Redd would fit that mold. He was an all-star in 2004. Most analyses believe the Lakers to be going after a big man, most notably Utah’s Carlos Boozer. But recent reports say that deal is off, so making a trade with the Bucks to acquire another potential star who if need be contract would come off the books at seasons’ end.
