Jared Dudley dishes to Zach Lowe on Bucks' trade and the future in Milwaukee

Jared Dudley has nothing but good things to say about his departure from Milwaukee -- though he's not sold on a big leap from the Bucks just yet. We should have known that it was only a matter of time before Jared Dudley offered his take on the trade that saw him shipped from Milwaukee to Washington, and like pretty much every other Dudley interview, his appearance on Zach Lowe's podcast on Friday did not disappoint. Like his first podcast with Lowe back in February, Dudley shot from the hip on a wide variety of topics -- including why he didn't opt out of his contract this summer,...

Jared Dudley on Brad Stevens: "Some people just get it at a young age."

Jared Dudley, now with the Wizards and just coming off back surgery to repair a herniated disk, went on The Lowe Post podcast with Zach Lowe and spoke candidly on NBA subjects for over an hour as only someone on post-surgery pain medication could. But when Lowe brought up the topic of NBA coaches, Dudley really perked up over the Boston Celtics' Brad Stevens. Here's a transcription of Dudley's exchange with Lowe: Dudley: To be honest with you, who I've been hearing great things [about] ... Brad Stevens. That's the buzz going around the league right now. Lowe: So who do you hear that from?...

Jared Dudley injury complicates the Wizards' offensive strategy to start the season

With Jared Dudley out for three to four months after having surgery on a herniated disc, the Wizards will have to figure out their wing rotation without him. Another offseason brings another bombshell the Wizards could not avoid. The news Jared Dudley will miss the next three to four months, likely including the beginning of the regular season, doesn't bury the Wizards this season, but it hurts. This is more than likely something they expected could happen and something they felt was worth the risk. It's rare that you find players who can produce like Dudley can on both ends of the floor....

Bucks rumored to have interest in Chris Copeland

According to a story by Sportando, the Milwaukee Bucks are on a short list of teams that are getting consideration from free agent Chris Copeland. The 6-9 forward has spent three years in the league, one with the New York Knicks and two with the Indiana Pacers. Copeland, 31, is known for his ability to stretch the floor and knock down shots.
