MILWAUKEE The Milwaukee Bucks have agreed to terms with free-agent swingman Mike Dunleavy Jr. on a two-year contact reportedly worth about 7.5 million, multiple news outlets reported Thursday.
The nine-year veteran and No. 3 overall pick in the 2002 NBA draft spent the past 4 12 seasons with the Indiana Pacers. In 2010-2011, he played in 61 games (44 starts) and averaged 11.2 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.7 assists, shooting 46.2 percent from the field and 40.2 percent from beyond the arc.
Dunleavys father was both a player and a coach for the Bucks. He played guard for Milwaukee from 1983-85, plus filled in for a few games as a player during both the 1988-89 and 1989-90 seasons, when he was an assistant coach. Dunleavy Sr. then was the Bucks head coach from 1992-96.
Deals cannot become official until training camps open Friday due to pending approval of a new collective bargaining agreement.
