Jodie Meeks: No longer with Toronto
The Raptors don't plan to re-sign Meeks after his 10-day contract expired Saturday, Josh Lewenberg of TSN.ca reports.
The expiration of Meeks' deal leaves the Raptors with just 13 players on the roster, giving the team two weeks to get back to league-mandated 14. For now, Toronto looks content to fill that spot with some of the other options available on the waiver wire, with Lewenberg noting that veteran center Marcin Gortat could be under consideration for the opening. Meeks only appeared in two games for Toronto during his brief stint with the club, averaging 7.5 points and 2.0 boards in 12.0 minutes.... See More ... See Less

Jodie Meeks: Officially waived by Bucks
Meeks will be waived by the Bucks on Saturday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
This was the plan all along when the Bucks acquired Meeks from Washington back in October, picking up a trade exception in the process. Meeks has been suspended to begin the year stemming from a violation of the league's anti-drug policy, and he'll be waived after Saturday's game against the Spurs with the suspension fully served. The veteran will be free to sign with another team, but it's unclear how much interest he'll generate on the open market.... See More ... See Less
Jodie Meeks: Traded to Bucks, will be waived
Meeks was traded to the Bucks on Monday and will be waived, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The Wizards will send Meeks, who's currently suspended for a violation of the league's anti-drug program, as well as cash and a second-round pick to the Bucks, who will use a trade exception to absorb Meeks before waiving him. It's essentially a means of opening up a roster spot for the Wizards and a pick-grab by Milwaukee, which did not have interest in keeping the veteran shooter around. Meeks will now become a free agent, but he won't be able to play until he complete's his 25-game ban, which he cannot begin serving until he signs with another team.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Jodie Meeks: Picks up player option
Meeks exercised his player option for the 2018-19 season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Meeks' option is a relatively cheap one -- just $3.4 million -- and will only pay him about $160,000 more than he made during the 2017-18 season. The 30-year-old appeared in 77 games -- his most in four years -- for the Wizards, but he shot just 39.9 percent from the floor and 34.3 percent from three, nearly three percentage points lower than his career mark. The Kentucky product will once again fill a minor role off the bench, but he'll miss roughly a quarter of the regular season after being suspended in April for a violation of the league's Anti-Drug policy....
