Damon Jones To Suit Up for Bucks; Milwaukee Fans Shrug

Bleacher Report Senior Analyst IDecember 27, 2008

Remember this guy? Well guess what—he's back.

After being traded to the Bucks along with Adrian Griffin (now a coach) and Luke Ridnour, Damon Jones will finally suit up for the Milwaukee Bucks.

A mutual agreement between Jones and the club kept him on the 15 man roster but away from the club. The Bucks presumably tried to look for a trading partner but were unsuccessful. So now, for reasons yet unknown, Jones has decided to be a member of the Bucks after all.

Does this mean that Jones will be here for the long haul, or is this just an exhibition to show him off to possible trade partners? It could be like the situation when Mike McKenzie returned to the Packers only to soon be traded to the Saints, but we'll see.

In the meantime, it will be interesting to see how he'll contribute and how many minutes he'll get. I wouldn't be surprised if he saw the floor tomorrow against the Pistons as Ridnour was sent home with the flu on Friday, and Charlie Bell is doubtful with a knee injury.

But as my brother said, there's no better way to stop a three-game winning streak than adding Damon Jones to the roster.
