Milwaukee Bucks Sign Four-Year Veteran Guard

The defending champion Milwaukee Bucks have added another piece to their roster, thanks to the re-jigging of the Brooklyn Nets. Immediately after the Nets waived guard Jevon Carter, he stated his intention to sign with the Bucks. Now, the deal is done.

Once the Nets added 35-year-old Goran Dragic from the buyout market earlier this week, they needed to clear space on the roster, and Carter was the victim. The Bucks, on the other hand, lost out on the Dragic sweepstakes, so they sign the 26-year-old Carter instead. 

As noted by Adrian Wojnarowski, Carter was the No. 32 pick in the 2018 draft by the Memphis Grizzlies. From there, he went on to play two seasons with the Phoenix Suns, before landing with the Nets this season. 

He averaged 3.6 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1 assist for Brooklyn, playing just 12 minutes a game. Carter showed some shooting upside while with Phoenix the previous two years, averaging just under 40% from three-point range. 

The 6'1" Carter falls into the Bucks' point guard rotation behind Jrue Holiday and George Hill. The Bucks say he'll wear #5.
