More Offseason Analysis: Coaching changes, news | Free Agency | Draft

Free agent guard Jerryd Bayless is close to a deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, per ESPN's Marc Stein:

Bayless averaged 9.3 points and 2.7 assists per game last season, which he split between the Memphis Grizzlies and the Boston Celtics.

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.
