Just three days away from their home-opener against the Miami Heat, the Wizards are still busy at work finalizing their 2018-19 roster. 

Jodie Meeks was traded to the Bucks Monday, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. The Wizards are also sending a future secound-round pick and cash. 

The Wizards' front office walks away with a total savings amount of $10.4 million in salary and luxury tax. A win for the team. 

The 31-year-old guard averaged just 6.3 points in his lone season with Washington a year ago. 

The move comes after Meeks was suspended 25 games for violating the NBA/NBPA anti-drug program last April. 

The No. 41 draft pick in the 2009 NBA draft has played for six teams throughout his career. He made brief stops in Mikwaukee, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Detroit and Orlando prior to arriving in the nation's capital. 

Milwaukee is expected to waive Meeks upon arrival.
