Apparently concerned that with Carmelo Anthony's pending return there won't be enough shots for Anthony, Allen Iverson *and* Earl Boykins (let alone anyone else), the Denver Nuggets traded Boykins to the Milwaukee Bucks for backup guard Steve Blake and second year swingman Julius Hodge.

Nuggets coach George Karl made it pretty clear he wasn't too thrilled to lose Boykins, either. The trade certainly makes sense from the battered Bucks' point of view, but what's up with the Nuggets in this instance? They seem to be getting Potential in return for Someone Who Contributes Right Now.

It's as if the Nuggets figured Boykins to be expendable now JR Smith is back.
The Bucks get someone who can actually create a basket for himself. It will be interesting to see what happens at the Bucks when Williams and Redd are both healthy again. Does Earl go to another team after that?
Maybe the Knicks, so they can run Earl and Nate at the same time.

Unless I'm mistaken, Hodge played for the Nuggets and was part of the package THEY sent over to the Bucks. So it was Boykins, Hodge, and cash in exchange for Steve Blake. Steve Blake isn't really worth squat (let alone what the Bucks got for him), but I think this was the Nuggets' only chance to avoid the impending luxury tax issues they were going to face. Plus, as stated before, there weren't gonna be enough shots for A.I., Carmelo, JR Smith, and Boykins.

Boykins and Blake wasted little time showing off in their new threads, scoring 30 and 25 points, respectively, as the Bucks defeated the Bobcats and the Nuggets bested the Trail Blazers.

In both instances it was that player's second game with their new team. Not bad.

Boykins, I'm not really surprised about, but Blake?
I didn't think he would see those kind of minutes and I had no idea he could actually score.

The best thing about the Bucks at the moment is Bogut starting to look like a decent first round pick.
