Hellweg Sent Down
After yesterday’s game the Brewers sent Johnny Hellweg and his 0-3 record down to the minors. Hellweg gets sent all the way down to the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers so he can make another start on his normal five day rotation. He’s expected to end up at Triple-A Nashville after the All-Star Break.

The Bucks appear ready to move on without Brandon Jennings. Reports say that the team has signed Atlanta point guard Jeff Teague to a four-year, $32 million dollar offer sheet. Teague is a restricted free agent so the Hawks have 3 days to match. Last season in Atlanta he averaged 15 points and 7 assists. If Teague ends up in Milwaukee it appears they will let Brandon Jennings leave or work a sign and trade deal. He is also a restricted free agent. The Bucks will also get guard Luke Ridnour back via a three team trade with Minnesota and Oklahoma City. Ridnour played for the Bucks from 2008 to 2010. The Bucks have also hired former Buck Scott Williams as an assistant coach.
Bynum To Cleveland
Free agent big man Andrew Bynum has decided to sign with Cleveland. The former LA Lakers center didn’t play a game last year in Philly after being part of the trade that brought Dwight Howard to the Lakers.
