Default Jodie Meeks, Francisco Elson to Philly

Quote:
MILWAUKEE — A person with direct knowledge of the deal tells The Associated Press that Milwaukee has agreed to a deal with the Philadelphia 76ers that would bring guard Royal Ivey back to the Bucks.

The person, who spoke Thursday on the condition of anonymity because the deal has not been completed, said the Bucks would send rookie guard Jodie Meeks and center Francisco Elson to Philadelphia for Ivey, center Primoz Brezec and a second-round pick in the 2010 draft. Ivey played for the Bucks in the 2007-08 season.

It would be the Bucks' second trade agreement before Thursday's deadline. The first would send forwards Hakim Warrick and Joe Alexander to Chicago for guard John Salmons.

A third string PG & C for a third string PG & C + 2nd rounder. Not sure if this is even an upgrade (putting aside the 2nd rounder for a moment).

Basically to get Jodie Meeks Sixers gave up a 2nd round pick this draft? Sold. A SG who can shoot? And a player I was screaming for last draft?

Meeks is a SG and despite his low percentages he can shoot. I watch every college game out there (college bball mod ) and I, like everyone else, fell in love with Meeks last year. He lacks a complete game but can catch fire and light a team up. Think JR Smith without the crazy athleticism.

It's not some crazy trade but it's a guy we wanted in the draft last year. With the poor job Stefanski has done with trades and signings, his evaluation of young talent and the draft (Speights, Holiday) isn't something I've questioned yet. Can we just start a lineup of Holiday/Meeks/Iguodala/Young/Speights?

Nice vid!! And thanks for the info on Meeks. Didn't saw much of him last year, nor with the Bucks so far so I had little knowledge of him. Now I'm looking forward to see how he can develop, and if he can become a contributor here.
