The Milwaukee Bucks appear to be on the verge of making their first move of free agency, as Marc Stein reports that they are closing in on a deal with combo guard Jerryd Bayless. The 25-year-old free agent averaged 10.1 points on 41 percent from the field and 39.5 percent shooting from three last year with the Boston Celtics. He previously had stints with the Blazers, Hornets, Raptors, and Grizzlies over his first five seasons. It was no secret that the Bucks were thin in the backcourt, and were pretty likely to add at least one person to throw into the rotation with Brandon Knight, Nate Wolters, and O.J. Mayo. Bayless may not be a terribly inspiring addition, but he shouldn't really be a threat to take tons of minutes away from the young players and won't cause too much damage to the Bucks cap situation.
