If Amir gets straded to the Raptors.. you can be sure that he will break out of his mediocre funk.

Trade is official

The Milwaukee Bucks have acquired guard/forward Carlos Delfino and guard Roko Ukic (pronounced ROE-co OO-kitch) from the Toronto Raptors in exchange for forward Amir Johnson and guard/forward Sonny Weems, General Manager John Hammond announced today.


“After drafting DeMar DeRozan and trading for Marco Belinelli, Hedo Turkoglu and Antoine Wright, Carlos made it clear he would prefer to play elsewhere if he were to return to the NBA,” said Raptors President and General Manager Bryan Colangelo. “There were limited sign and trade scenarios available, but acquiring Amir Johnson in this deal gives us another long, talented young big man whose best basketball is ahead of him.”

Looks like Sonny Weems may be closing in on Q. Richardson's record of the number of times he's traded in one summer.

Posted this elsewhere, but with this trade the Raps now only have 3 players returning to the 2009/2010 team from the 2008/2009 team: Bosh, Bargnani and Calderon. 12 of the 15 roster spots are new players.

Unfortunately we still have Patrick "Pussycat" O'Bryant from last year and Douby but Douby is a player i would like to see get some minutes.

Isn't this trade terrible for Johnson?

On the Bucks, he'd actually have a very slight chance of starting or at least playing decent backup minutes. On the Raptors he is now behind 4 other PF/C players on the depth chart.

Yes, sorry, I meant to add from the roster to start last season. Good eye.

Luckily, Douby and POB will only be used in emergency situations/garbage time.

There is two ways of thinking what Hammond is doing for the Bucks

1) Show the Milwaukee fans he can make trades - and is an active trader .
(Even though he had a playoff team , and it now will take years before his franchise see's a team that can get to the Eastern conference Finals)

2) Clear enough salaries for a future owner to welcome the team with open arms.

** Or multi-task and do both .

I can't believe we let Delfino go, he can score better than Calderon and dunk better than VC.

Sheesh.
