Bucks add Young, Johnson, waive Barnett, McCoy

James Young has signed with the Bucks.

The Milwaukee Bucks, as is the case with pretty much every NBA team at this point of the offseason, continue to tinker with their training-camp roster.

The Bucks signed James Young and Robert Johnson on Tuesday and waived Jordan Barnett and Brandon McCoy.

The most notable of the four players involved in the moves Tuesday is Young, the 17th overall pick in the 2014 draft by the Boston Celtics.

However, the 6-foot-6, 215-pound shooting guard out of Kentucky has never been able to put it together at the NBA level.

Young appeared in 89 games over three seasons with the Celtics, never averaging more than 3.4 points per game. He was in training camp with Milwaukee a year ago and spent a portion of the season with the Philadelphia 76ers on a two-way contract. Young appeared in six games for the Sixers, averaging 2.8 points in 10.2 minutes per game, shooting 35.7 percent from the field, 30.0 percent from deep and 66.7 percent from the free-throw line.

The 23-year-old left-hander has done very well in his time in the G League, though, averaging 19.8 points and 5.2 boards in 70 career games.

Despite the moves Tuesday, the Bucks’ roster is most certainly fluid in nature as as the team has reportedly reached agreements with Shabazz Muhammad and Christian Wood. In addition, Bobby Marks of ESPN and Keith Smith of RealGM have both reported veteran guard Tim Frazier is likely to be added, as well.

All of which means the four players involved in the moves Tuesday are candidates to join Milwaukee’s G League affiliate, the Wisconsin Herd.
