Salmons lands five-year, $39 million pact with Milwaukee

The Bucks are nearing a deal to re-sign guard John Salmons.

A source told FanHouse the deal is done except for a few minor points. Milwaukee general manager John Hammond had told FanHouse very early Thursday morning he had "guarded” optimism that Salmons would re-sign.

The source said the deal will be for five years for about $39 million.


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: He’s a perfect fit.

After all, the Milwaukee Bucks were much improved after acquiring shooting-guard John Salmons from the Chicago Bulls at the trade deadline.

Salmons can score in many ways: he has deep range from the perimeter; can stick the in-between shot; and also gets to the basket.

His knack for scoring and low-key personality helped the surprising Bucks qualify for the playoffs.

And at $8 million per year, an extension was a no-brainer for both Salmons and Milwaukee.
