Posted:
PRESS RELEASE FROM THE MILWAUKEE BUCKS:
The Milwaukee Bucks have acquired veteran guard Luke Ridnour (6-2, 175) as part of a three-team deal involving the Minnesota Timberwolves and Oklahoma City Thunder, General Manager John Hammond announced today. The Bucks also received a 2014 second round draft pick from Minnesota (via the Los Angeles Lakers) and cash considerations from Oklahoma City as part of the trade, while the Thunder signed Kevin Martin to a contract and traded him to the Timberwolves along with cash considerations. Milwaukee sent the draft rights to 2003 second round pick Szymon Szewczyk (35th overall) to Oklahoma City to complete the deal.
 
Ridnour, 32, started all 82 games for Minnesota last season and averaged 11.5 points, 3.8 assists, 2.5 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 30.2 minutes per game. The 10-year pro shot 45.3 percent from the floor, 31.1 percent from the three-point arc and 84.8 percent from the free throw line.
 
Selected with the 14th overall pick in the 2003 NBA Draft, Ridnour played his first five NBA seasons with the Seattle SuperSonics. Prior to the 2008 season he was traded to Milwaukee where he played two seasons with the Bucks, including the 2009-10 campaign when he shot career-highs of 47.8 percent from the floor and 90.7 percent from the line. He signed a multi-year contract with the Timberwolves in 2010 and has played the last three seasons in Minnesota. Ridnour owns career averages of 10.0 points, 4.8 assists, 2.4 rebounds and 1.1 steals in 722 regular season games (479 starts).
