Bucks, Gerald Green Sign Deal

Sep. 24: The Bucks officially announced having signed Green to a training camp deal in a press release on their website.

Sep. 22: With training camps set to begin, teams around the NBA continue to fill up their preseason rosters, and the Bucks are the latest club to agree to terms with a veteran free agent. According to Shams Charania of The Vertical, Milwaukee has reached a deal to sign swingman Gerald Green.

Charania reports that Green’s new contract with Milwaukee will be non-guaranteed, but will give him the chance to compete for a spot on the club’s 15-man roster. The Bucks are currently carrying 14 players on guaranteed contracts, meaning Green may have to beat out all the team’s non-guaranteed invitees – including Brandon Rush, Kendall Marshall, and James Young – to earn that final roster spot.

Green, 31, appeared in 47 games for the Celtics last season, averaging 5.6 PPG with a shooting line of .409/.351/.805 in 11.4 minutes per contest. Those numbers represented a step down from Green’s career averages — as recently as 2013/14, he was a regular in Phoenix, averaging 15.8 PPG and shooting 40.0% on three-point attempts.

The Bucks entered the day with 19 players under contract after waiving Bronson Koenig on Thursday, so once they officially sign Green, they’ll be back at their offseason roster limit.

    He should have been signed a long time ago, to be honest. I hope he does great in Milwaukee.

    • He waited for a guaranteed deal, but none came up…. so now he fights to make a roster…, again.

      Pretty resilient fellow. Drafted as a star out of high school and has had several ups and downs. Came back strong with Phoenix and resurrected his career. Knows how to work hard….. good bet to be that 15th guy here and be an option Off the Bench.

    Replaces Beasley as potential offensive depth off the bench, and his improved defense from his stint in Miami should help him see some minutes for them
