    Does this not seem ridiculously one-sided?

    This is a salary dump by GS.

    Maggette has 3 years for about $30 million left

    Gadzuric $7 for 2010-11 and his contract expires 2010-11
    Bell about $3 million a year expires 2011-12

    So the Bucks get a guy they can use for another $20 million

    And GS gets two warm bodies for about $13 million over the next two season and they replace Maggette $10 million a year for 3 years or $30 million with Morrow at $1 million for 2010-11.

    Morrow is a pretty good scorer.

    Watch for Hammond to continue to improve the Bucks nicely. This was a good pickup for them. This will be the first time that Maggette will be playing for a playoff type team. They gave up next to nada to get a dangerous piece who will play defence under Skiles.

    Hammond was the brains behind the Pistons playoffs teams not Dumars.

    Like Buddahfan said, cash dump. They regretted signing Maggette before his first season was out. This trade was a long time in the making.

    I wonder in BC offered Banks and Evans? Magettee would have been a nice pickup.

    Default Magette & Skiles

    Scott Skiles will find out soon that Magette doesn't play a lick of defense .I'm sure Corey will get benched sometime during the season for not playin D. Magette would have been a perfect fit for the "NO D" Raps.

    the way delfino played this past season and the way maggette seems he's not an upgrade over delfino. delfino is underated as we have learned.

    Maggette still scores enormously (20 and 5), which is a major improvement over Delfino.

    I was under the impression that Bell was making closer to 8m, I misread the ESPN note.

    If Maggette has not played defense in years in the league. There's no reason to think he's going to suddenly start now. Not playing defense has become an engrained habit with Maggette. It's unlikely he's going to unlearn the habits he's learned over the last ten years. That's why players who play for bad teams generally stay on bad teams and visa versa. I used to like Maggette, but too many years of losing have taken their toll on him.

    As for the trade being one-sided, it all depends on how you look at it. Maggette certainly wasn't helping the Warriors win. They're far too stocked at his position and losing him might actually help the team in the short term and long term.

    Who cares? They've got M'bah Amoute, Delfino (who could play SG) and even Bogut for defense.

    I haven't paid any attention to Jennings' D, how is it?

    Maggette is a better scorer than Delfino. No one denies that. That doesn't mean he's a better player than him.

    This is to replace John Salmons who they are not re-signing. I'd say its an upgrade especially now that they got Douglas-Roberts for next to nothing.
