ESPN.com's Adrian Wojnarowski and Dave McMenamin reported Saturday that veteran forward Richard Jefferson and the Milwaukee Bucks have mutual interest in a contract once he clears waivers.

The Atlanta Hawks acquired Jefferson and guard Kay Felder in a trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday and immediately waived Jefferson.

Wojnarowski and McMenamin added that there are other teams interested in potentially signing Jefferson as well, although Milwaukee already has room on its roster after releasing guard Gerald Green.
