John Salmons interviewMilwaukee Bucks guard John Salmons has fit in quite nicely on his new team since being traded by the Chicago Bulls a few weeks ago. The 6-6, 205-pound veteran was averaging 12.7 points and 3.4 rebounds on Chicago this season, but in his seven Bucks games he's put up 20.1 points on a higher shooting percentage in just a few extra minutes per game.

Insidehoops.com editor Jeff Lenchiner recently met with Salmons for a very quick, exclusive interview:

InsideHoops.com: How'd you find out you were getting traded? And, were you expecting it?

John Salmons: I thought it was a great possibility that I was going to get traded. But I didn't know where. My agent told me, when everything was going down.

InsideHoops.com: What are your best memories from your time on the Bulls?

Salmons: Just making that playoff run. And that playoff series against Boston. That's something I'll never forget, just being a part of that. That was definitely my biggest moment in my career.

InsideHoops.com: No one wanted that series to end. On Twitter, weeks after it ended I kept joking that the thing was still going and you guys were in your 3,000th overtime.

Salmons: It was a great series to be a part of.

InsideHoops.com: Are you on Twitter at all?

Salmons: No.

InsideHoops.com: As for becoming a part of the Bucks, do you think switching teams was better for you and your career?

Salmons: For whatever reason, my time was up in Chicago. It was time to move on. This is where God placed me at.

InsideHoops.com: What have you seen from Brandon Jennings so far? Great rookie, smart player for a young point guard.

Salmons: A young player that's growing every day, getting better every day. I think he's going to be a really good player in the league.

InsideHoops.com: What one thing in particular is he already really good at?

Salmons: Just his ability to get anywhere he wants on the court, whenever he wants.

InsideHoops.com: The quickness.

Salmons: Yeah. That's a great attribute for a point guard.
