Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - The Chicago Bulls made it official on Thursday, by trading guard John Salmons and a pair of second-round draft picks to Milwaukee.

In return, the Bulls receive forwards Hakim Warrick and Joe Alexander. The Bucks also have the option of switching first round picks with Chicago in the 2010 draft providing the Bulls' first rounder is not within the top 10 picks.

"We like the combination of our player talent, cap flexibility and our ability to improve our team this summer in the free agent market," said Chicago Bulls general manager Gar Forman. "This trade is another step in the process of building our team and getting better."

The 30-year-old Salmons, who came over from the Kings last season in a midseason trade, averaged 12.7 points and 3.4 rebounds in 51 games -- 28 starts -- for Chicago this season.

Warrick, 27, was selected with the 19th pick in the 2005 draft out of Syracuse by Memphis. He spent his first four seasons with the Grizzlies before signing with the Bucks this past offseason. In 48 games -- six starts -- Warrick has posted averages of 10.2 points and 4.4 rebounds in just over 21 minutes per contest this year.

Alexander, 23, the eighth overall selection in the 2008 draft, missed the first 41 games this year because of a right hamstring injury and has not accumulated any statistics. The West Virginal product was sent to Fort Wayne of the NBA Development League on January 20.

In his rookie season, Alexander appeared in only six games and finished with averages of 5.7 points and 3.3 rebounds in 18.0 minutes of action.
