Buckeye great Michael Redd will announce his retirement from the NBA Wednesday night in Milwaukee.
The Bucks drafted Redd with the 43rd overall selection of the 2000 NBA Draft and he went on to play 11 seasons with Milwaukee, averaging 20.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game. Redd concludes his career 4th on the all-time Bucks list for scoring with 11,554 points.
Redd holds the Milwaukee record for points in a game – his 57, coming against Utah on Nov. 11, 2006 broke Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's old mark of 55 points that stood for 35 years – along with the team record for three-pointers in one quater (eight triples in the fourth quarter of a game with Houston in 2002).
A Columbus native, Redd starred for the Buckeyes from 1997-2000 and teamed with Scoonie Penn to lead the Buckeyes to the 1999 Final Four.
A great run, by all accounts, for the smooth-stroking lefty.
