Michael Redd knows his time with the Milwaukee Bucks likely will come to an end Wednesday night. He doesn't see the clock running out on his career anytime soon.

Despite two separate injuries to his left knee that have allowed him to play only sporadically off the bench since he returned late last month, Redd says he "absolutely" still believes he can be a regular contributor in the NBA.

Redd is in the final season of a six-year, $91 million deal he signed in 2005. The Bucks aren't expected to re-sign him, so Wednesday night's season finale at Oklahoma City probably will be his last game in a Bucks uniform after 11 seasons.
