Reports: Bucks agree to three-year deal with Zaza Pachulia
The Bucks and Zaza Pachulia have agreed to terms on a three-year deal, giving Milwaukee yet another frontcourt body.
Give the Bucks this: Nobody can question the impressive number of frontcourt players they've assembled.
Free agents can't officially sign until July 10.
If the Bucks don't use the amnesty on Drew Gooden -- which makes all the sense in the world, especially with adding Pachulia -- they now have seven capable frontcourt players, assuming they exercise the team option on Gustavo Ayon. For those scoring at home, there's John Henson, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, Gooden, Pachulia, Larry Sanders, Ekpe Udoh and Ersan Ilyasova.
Hard to figure exactly what the Bucks are thinking, though Pachulia's signing almost certainly signals the departure of Samuel Dalembert, who is an unrestricted free agent. But with young, talented players ready for more playing time like Udoh, Sanders and Henson, the Bucks have only logjammed their frontcourt rotation even more.
Then again, not many transactions the Bucks have made the past year have made a ton of sense.
Pachulia, 29, has been a quality rotation big in Atlanta the past eight seasons. He actually spent a season in Milwaukee, playing the 2004-05 campaign with the Bucks.
In 52 games last season he averaged 5.9 points and 6.5 rebounds.
The two best point guards in the East go at it in a series sure to be filled with drama.
