A person with direct knowledge of the deal tells The Associated Press that Milwaukee has agreed to a deal with the Philadelphia 76ers that would bring guard Royal Ivey back to the Bucks.

The person, who spoke Thursday on the condition of anonymity because the deal has not been completed, said the Bucks would send rookie guard Jodie Meeks and center Francisco Elson to Philadelphia for Ivey, center Primoz Brezec and a second-round pick in the 2010 draft. Ivey played for the Bucks in the 2007-08 season.

It would be the Bucks' second trade agreement before Thursday's deadline. The first would send forwards Hakim Warrick and Joe Alexander to Chicago for guard John Salmons.
