ESPN sources say Milwaukee Bucks are closing in on a deal with free-agent guard Jerryd Bayless— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 16, 2014
The combo guard will be able to play alongside point guards Brandon Knight and Nate Wolters, or run the offense himself. Giannis Antetokounmpo is also expected to spend some time playing the point for new head coach Jason Kidd.
While he isn't a splashy signing, at this point in free agency Bayless is probably the best player available at his position outside of restricted free agent Eric Bledsoe.
Financial terms have yet to be reported.
