Salmons still going to Bucks, but now it's for Warrick and Alexander

We told you earlier that the Bucks and Bulls had worked out a trade to send John Salmons to Milwaukee for Francisco Elson and Kurt Thomas, then let you know the Bulls were in flux about whether it would be Thomas or Hakim Warrick. Now we’re here to tell you that the Bulls flip-flopped this thing completely.

The trade is now John Salmons to Milwaukee for Hakim Warrick and Joe Alexander.

The Bulls still get the expring cap space, almost the exact same amount, with the totals for Warrick-Alexander reaching $5.5 million versus Salmons $6.4. Most important is the Bulls rid themselves of Salmons’ option for 2010-2011, putting them in prime position for this summer’s free agency auction, and that’s before a potential Tracy McGrady move.

Alexander is currently on assignment with the D-League.
