NBA trade rumors: Wizards called Bucks about Luke Ridnour, according to report

Add another name to the backup PG list.

In their ongoing quest to upgrade the backup point guard slot, the Wizards have called the Milwaukee Bucks about Luke Ridnouraccording to CBS Sports' Ken Berger. Other teams, including the Sacramento Kings, have done the same, Berger reports.

Ridnour has long been a reliable option for many different teams, but he's lost minutes this year as the Bucks prefer to go with youngsters Brandon Knight and Nate Wolters. He's also been dealing with back issues, which have kept him in and out of the lineup throughout the past month. He's only played more than 20 minutes a game once since January 18.

If healthy, Ridnour is a solid offensive caretaker that can shoot and run an offense effectively. He is definitely not a very good defender. Contract-wise, he's got just year at $4.4 million left, so acquiring him would likely cost multiple members of the Flotsam or other players.

Previously, the Wizards expressed interest in Andre Miller and Beno Udrih. I still don't see why backup point is an essential position to upgrade.
