Of the four players involved in the Clippers-Bucks-Suns 3-way deal last year, Jared Dudley played the most minutes.
Jared Dudley and a future first round pick was the price the Clippers were willing to pay for roster and cap flexibility.
That $3.5 mil in cap space cost the Clippers Jared Dudley and a lottery-protected 1st round pick in 2017.
Technically Jared Dudley has to pass a Milwaukee physical for Clippers/Bucks trade to be official - not the case with Thabeet
The Clippers' pick to the Bucks in Dudley trade is lottery protected through 2019 - otherwise becomes 2020/21 second-rounders
Curioso lo de Clippers con Delfino. Tras adqirirlo en un trade x Jared Dudley y un futuro draft pick, se dice que lo cortaría
Updated Bucks' cap situation following Dudley deal: http://t.co/ANgb7geIvy
Clippers announce trade - Carlos Delfino, Miroslav Raduljica and their 2015 2nd for Jared Dudley and a protected 2017 1st
Bucks make trade official, acquiring Jared Dudley and 2017 conditional 1st from Clips for Carlos Delfino, Miroslav Raduljica and 2015 2nd.
Bucks acquire Jared Dudley and a 2017 conditional first round draft pick from the Clippers for Delfino, Raduljica and return LAC’s 2015 2nd.
Clippers make it official. They get Carlos Delfino, Miroslav Raduljica and a 2015 2nd rd pick for Dudley and a protected 2017 first rd pick.
Bucks also sending 2015 second rounder acquired in Redick S&T deal back to Clippers. Oddly, Dudley went from Clips to PHX in that deal.
Further irony of Dudley deal: Bucks actually GAIN $500k in cap room in 14/15, and only add cap$ in 15/16 if Dudley doesn't opt out.
Writing was on the wall for Clippers' Jared Dudley when he averaged only 1.3 points in 6.4 minutes per playoff game.
Irony of Dudley deal: because he can opt out next summer, Dudley might actually be more appealing if he DOESN'T want to come to MIL...
Bucks GM Jason Ki... um, John Hammond strikes a deal for Jared Dudley.
Dudley is also a good fit for how Jason Kidd is going to want them to play. Not sure of the motivation for Clips to give up a first, though.
I like today's trade for the Bucks. Dudley provides 3-point shooting and a good veteran presence, both things they need.
Upside to Dudley deal for Clippers: unloads underperformer, provides longer-term flexibility b/c Delfino, Raduljica can be waived in a year.
