Milwaukee Bucks General Manager John Hammond continued his assault on the Bucks roster by signing free agent PG Keyon Dooling to a two-year deal Monday. Reports have the deal at about $2-million a year.
Dooling will be entering his 11th NBA Season and enjoying his 5th NBA city. For his career, Dooling is averaging 7.2 points, 2.2 assists and1.4 rebounds per game. He spent last season in a reserve role with New Jersey where he appeared in 53 games, starting 8, compiling 6.9 points and 2.5 assists a game.
Dooling fills an obvious need at back-up point guard for the Bucks. Luke Ridnour recently left for Minnesota via free agency giving the Bucks no experience behind Brandon Jennings.
Milwaukee may not have been done with only that move Monday. A report by the AP came out that they also acquired F Jon Brockman in a sign-and-trade deal for F Darnell Jackson and a 2nd round pick.
Brockman averaged 2.8 points and 4.1 rebounds a game last season as a rookie with Sacramento.
