Free-agent shooting guard Pat Connaughton has agreed to a deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, according to a report from Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.

Connaughton is signing a two-year deal with the Bucks worth slightly more than the minimum salary in both seasons, with the first year guaranteed.

Connaughton has spent the previous three seasons with the Portland Trail Blazers. Portland did not extend a qualifying offer to the 25-year-old, making him an unrestricted free agent.

In 82 games this past season, Connaughton averaged 5.4 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.1 assists while shooting 42.3 percent from the field and 35.2 percent from three.

For his career, Connaughton has averages of 3.7 points, 1.6 rebounds and 0.8 assists in 155 games.
