Report: Wizards trading for Bucks’ Jared Dudley

10 Comments

After losing Paul Pierce to the Clippers on Wednesday, the Wizards are in need of a new small forward, and it looks like they’re about to get one. Jared Dudley surprisingly opted into the final year and $4.25 million of his contract with the Bucks, and ESPN.com’s Marc Stein is reporting that Milwaukee is sending him to Washington for a future pick.

Dudley isn’t Pierce, but he’s considerably younger (29 to Pierce’s 37) and he’s a solid defender and shooter (his career mark from three-point range is 39.6 percent). Considering they aren’t giving up anything of significance for him, it’s a nice¬†pickup for the Wizards.
