Sources: Bucks to get Salmons

The Milwaukee Bucks expect to complete a trade for Chicago Bulls swingman John Salmons(notes), league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

The Bulls kept Salmons at their team hotel Wednesday night in preparation for a trade while they left to play the New York Knicks.

The Bucks are expected to send center Francisco Elson(notes) and another player to the Bulls. Kurt Thomas was initially believed to be in the trade, but a league source said forward Hakim Warrick would more likely end up being the final piece.
