Not that, given his history, he'll be able to stay in Milwaukee, but Drew Gooden, who averaged 10.9 PPG and 7 RPG last year while splitting time between the Mavericks and Clippers, will sign a 5-year, $32 million deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, reports.

His career averages are 11.9 PPG and 7.9 RPG, decent-enough numbers to ensure a spot with any team, really. His career year was in '04-05 with Cleveland, in which he averaged 14.4 PPG and 9.2 RPG.

Drafted fourth overall by the Memphis Grizzlies in 2002, Gooden will be joining his ninth team; he has also played for the Magic, Cavaliers, Bulls, Kings, Spurs, Mavericks and Clippers. (He was also briefly part of the Washington Wizards roster last year, coming over in the Josh Howard trade before going over to the Clippers in the "trade" that got the Cavs Antwan Jamison and temporarily lost them Zydrunas Ilgauskas).

In other Bucks news, Milwaukee re-signed John Salmons at 5 years, $40M:

    MILWAUKEE (AP)—Another day, another deal for the Milwaukee Bucks, who have suddenly become one of the biggest buyers during the most-hyped free agency period in NBA history.

    The Bucks made another major move Friday, agreeing in principle to a $40 million, five-year deal with free agent guard John Salmons, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press. The person spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity Friday because the deal can’t become official until next Thursday.

The Bucks got really hot after acquiring Salmons from the Bulls, so this was a wise move on their part. They've essentially retained the nucleus of their team and if Bogut stays healthy this time, they might make more noise in next year's playoffs.

But that Gooden signing is just baffling. No way you give that much money to a guy that hasn't been on a team longer than a year.

Salmons is a good guy and I'm really happy for his success. I hope the Bucks do well and that he's a big part of it.
