Milwaukee Bucks Getting Inside 2008-12-29

Milwaukee Bucks Getting Inside 2008-12-29
For almost four months, the Bucks haven't had any use for Damon Jones and vice versa.

After acquiring the veteran guard in a multi-player, multi-team trade in August, the Bucks made it abundantly clear Jones wasn't going to fit into their plans.

The team and Jones reached an agreement where Jones would continue to work out on his own while the Bucks looked for a new home for him. The Bucks were even willing to pay a portion of Jones' $4.4 million salary.

But with no takers and with some health issues concerning their guard corps, the Bucks have decided to bring Jones on board.

How long he will remain with Milwaukee is uncertain. The Bucks are still exploring trade options, and it is believed there are a couple of teams that are interested in Jones if financial terms can be ironed out.

Jones, 32, flew to Milwaukee on Saturday but didn't dress for that night's game against the Pistons.

PISTONS 87, BUCKS 76: The Bucks can ill-afford to have either one of their principle scorers -- Michael Redd and Richard Jefferson -- have an off night. But both struggled Saturday night at the Bradley Center, as Jefferson scored 10 points and Redd just four. Both players were AWOL in the third quarter when the Pistons took control of the game, outscoring the Bucks 27-11 in the period to take a 73-55 advantage. Neither player scored in the period, as they went 0-for-5 from the field.

The Bucks made just five of 21 field-goal attempts in the third period -- a paltry 24 percent.
