Report: Richard Jefferson in talks with Milwaukee
Jason Kidd is reportedly looking to bring in an old teammate to give his Milwaukee Bucks some veteran help.
Chris Mannix of the Vertical reported Saturday that the Bucks are one of several teams in talks with veteran forward Richard Jefferson, who was waived by the Atlanta Hawks after his trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Such a move would reunite Jefferson with Kidd, who played together with the New Jersey Nets from 2001 to 2008. It’s clear evidence that rumors of Jefferson’s retirement were, as reported, very much overblown.
