Bucks Sign Jae Crowder to One-Year Deal

The Bucks have officially signed forward Jae Crowder, the team announced in a press release.Jae Crowder

Per Chris Haynes of Bleacher Report/TNT, the deal is for one year.

Crowder, 32, held out for the majority of last season with the Suns before being acquired by the Bucks in February. He appeared in 18 games with Milwaukee, averaging 6.9 points and 3.8 rebounds, shooting 48 percent from the field and 44 percent on 3-pointers.

He fell out of the rotation for the playoffs, at least until forward Giannis Antetokounmpo hurt his back — when former coach Mike Budenholzer reinserted Crowder into the lineup.

Crowder is expected to back up Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton in the frontcourt, along with newcomer Malik Beasley.
