Well, it looks like the Bucks could not find a taker for Bruce Bowen. He was released Friday along with Salim Stoudamire. Bowen arrived as part of the Richard Jefferson deal that brought on Amir Johnson and Stoudamire signed late last year as a prospective trade throw-in or summer league surprise. He filled neither role as his salary never came into play and he never made it onto the court in Las Vegas.
The moves save the Bucks a combined amount of roughly $3 million. Bowen had only half of his $4 million contract guaranteed while none of Stoudamire’s $884,881 was guaranteed.
