The Milwaukee Bucks landed a big man who can shoot in free agency on Friday, agreeing to a 3-year, $30 million deal with Mirza Teletovic.
Teletovic averaged 12.2 points and 3.8 rebounds in a reserve role with the Phoenix Suns last season, shooting a career best 39.3% from three-point range.
Teletovic is re-united with head coach Jason Kidd after playing for Kidd in Brooklyn. Teletovic played for the Nets during his first three NBA seasons.
Multiple reports also say the Bucks have signed Cleveland free agent guard Matthew Dellavedova to an offer sheet, one that the Cavaliers will have until July 10th to match. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that it’s unlikely the Cavaliers will match that offer.
The Bucks also lost guard Jerryd Bayless after he agreed to a three-year, $27 million deal with the Philadelphia 76ers. Bayless ranked fourth in the league in three-point shooting last season, averaging 43.7% from distance.
