On Thursday, the Milwaukee Bucks made a big pickup to their roster for next season.
According to Chris Haynes of Yahoo!, they signed veteran guard Joe Ingles.
The 34-year-old has spent the last eight seasons with the Utah Jazz, and been a very productive player (career averages of 8.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.8 assists).
He is also a knockdown shooter, who has a career average of 40.8% shooting from the three-point line.
During the year, he had a season-ending injury and ended up getting traded to the Portland Trail Blazers (but he did not play in a game with them).
For a Bucks team that has Giannis Antetokounmpo, they need to load the roster up with shooters, and Ingles is the perfect pickup.
