HoopsHype Dan Gadzuric rumors
The deal with Salmons is "real close," a league source said Thursday, but not completely finished. Earlier in the day, Milwaukee agreed to terms with veteran power forward Drew Gooden on a five-year, $32 million deal, continuing an active offseason that saw the Bucks acquire veteran forward Corey Maggette from Golden State last month for center Dan Gadzuric and guard Charlie Bell. The Bucks know that the 28-year-old Gooden has bounced around from team to team throughout his career, but feel he can settle in at power forward next to center Andrew Bogut instead of having to play in the middle as he did in Dallas and in other stops in his career.

It didn't escape Jennings' notice that the Bucks also obtained veteran small forward Corey Maggette in a trade with Golden State, with center Dan Gadzuric and guard Charlie Bell going to the Warriors. "He's a guy who can get to the line," Jennings said of the 30-year-old Maggette, who will be entering his 12th pro season. "That's what we missed last year. He can get you 20 or more (points per game), so I'm excited." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
