Steve Blake Traded to Milwaukee Bucks

Steve Blake (1999-2003) was traded along with two other players from Portland to the Milwaukee Bucks in exchange for Jamal Magloire on July 31. Here's what the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has to say about their team's newest acquisition:

Although Mo Williams will go into training camp as the starter at point guard, based on two productive seasons with the Bucks, Blake will be given a chance to earn his share of backcourt playing time.

The 26-year-old Blake went from a third-string position to the starting point guard job with the Trail Blazers last season. He ranked third in the National Basketball Association in assist-to-turnover ratio (3.69-to-1) and averaged 8.2 points and 4.5 assists.
