    Default michael redd

    i know his had a bad run with injuries , but would you consider signing him this offseason as he is a free agent.if he can play anywhere we he left off before his injuries i believe he would be a good pick up and could even take some of the attention away from granger. which would benefit granger so he could concentrate on the defensive end.hopefully we could pick redd up cheap and it pays off.

    I don't think it would hurt as long as he's not making much. he's a really nice guy and I couldn't see him stirring up confusion. He wouldn't play much at all. You have George, Dunlevy, Rush, and Stephenson (if he gets it together) who are all in that same spot, but maybe he could teach the young guys a trick or two.

    Gotta be dirt cheap given the injury history or no thanks.

    Redd is another one of them classic cases of what if. Dude would've had one hell of a career had he stayed healthy. I like him if it is on the cheap.

    With our wing rotation as it stands, if he was brought in on a fairly cheap deal, it would be well worth it. If he is capable of playing at the level he once did, he would be a steal. Or if at least his outside shooting has remained, he would be a great situational player. Redd would be another veteran in the clubhouse that would help our youth. He gives us another dimension off the bench in a worst case scenario. If he stays hurt, you aren't paying him much.

    I think it would be something to strongly consider. I think there will be teams out there willing to give players like he and McGrady a little more money than we would want to pay for our 3rd-5th wing. Also, if he plays well, it would give us the flexibility to trade Brandon or Dahntay (even though I would prefer not to).

    This is a guy who could not get off the bench for a Bucks team that was one of the worst offensive teams in the league, injury or not. No thanks. The Bucks are glad to be rid of him this off-season.

    Have you ever had major knee surgery?

    If you have, you would know that you don't just come back from it. He had two major surgeries and it typically takes two full years to really get back. Yes, guys play after about 8 months, but that is not anywhere near 100%. When a guy first is capable of playing again, he is out of shape and out of the flow of the game. Plus, he was more prone to getting injured again at that point. You don't just give a guy 30 minutes a night when he is first back from a major injury.

    I think Redd will be servicable if he does continue his career. The guy's best characteristic over the years has been his shooting. And the one thing I know was that my jumper improved when I was injured, because all I could do is shoot. I don't think he will have lost the one thing you want from him most. Plus, the guy has played for USA Basketball and will bring experience to the clubhouse on the cheap. If he's not going to be cheap, this isn't even a discussion.

    LOL what makes you think he will return next year and revive his career? The guy plays about 20 games a season and then pops his knee and is out for the year. Yeah, we want another Dunleavy under contract.

    1. Redd only played in 10 games last season. This was after being away from competitive basketball for 14 months! Of COURSE he didn't play up to his standards!

    2. His last healthy season, '07 and '08 when he played in 72 games, he averaged:

    22.7 points on 44% shooting and 36% from deep, along with 4+ rebounds, 3 assists and 7 FTA per game.

    Like has been said, if you can get him for a reasonable price, do it. Especially if you can move Rush and Dunleavy. With Rush, you go from a guy who has never matured to Redd, a guy who has never caused trouble, is a 10 year vet, and has the Olympic experience. Plus, as a shooter, he can get that part of his game back.

    This guy is a potential 6th man of the year. Between '03 and '09 he averaged 24 points/game, he's rested, and you never know how these knee things turn out.

    I'd love to have the veteran. It wasn't that long ago he was considered one of, if not the, best shooters in the league.

    Of course, he would have to take a giant pay cut, as $18.3M is, well, ridiculous.

    I feel like he could pick up his career again if he's able to get healthy. Remember, even though he is 31, its not so much the age that counts, but rather the miles. He's had plenty of rest the past few years!

    This is pretty ignorant.

    Again, he didn't get off the bunch because of 14 months of rehab costing him any practice/training camp time. As a coach, the last thing you need is to throw a veteran shooter that hasn't played in well over a year into the mix of a team that is already struggling.


    "I could be out there playing, but if you haven't had a training camp or a preseason, it's hard to find your rhythm," Redd said. "And I got thrown into it. It's a difficult situation because I didn't want to disrupt the chemistry of the team, try to push my own agenda and trying to shoot shots. Just want to play and have fun, and coach Skiles has been great for me, and [general manager] John Hammond. We're on the same page." -Redd, when asked about playing time.

    Right, I didn't mean "move" as in trade, I meant "move" as in move from the rotation.
