Free agent shooting guard Wesley Matthews has agreed to a minimum contract with the Milwaukee Bucks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
Matthews will theoretically help fill the backcourt void left by Malcolm Brogdon, who agreed to a sign-and-trade that sent him to the Indiana Pacers.
Matthews, 32, finished last season with the Pacers, averaging 10.9 points in 23 games. Before that, he agreed to a contract buyout with the New York Knicks.
“The NBA’s Executive of the Year Jon Horst did a tremendous job building out the Bucks bench a summer ago,” Wojnarowski wrote. “Solid addition on a minimum deal here. Several contenders were in pursuit of Matthews, who played his college ball at Marquette.”
Matthews has also spent time with the Utah Jazz, Portland Trail Blazers and Dallas Mavericks.
