Report: Bucks sign Pachulia to 3-year deal
Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - The Milwaukee Bucks have agreed to terms on a three-year contract with center Zaza Pachulia, a league source told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Saturday.
Pachulia, a 10-year veteran who spent the 2004-05 season with the Bucks and previously played for new Milwaukee head coach Larry Drew in Atlanta, will receive $15 million over the course of the pact according to the report.
The 29-year-old had been a member of the Hawks over the past eight seasons and averaged 5.9 points and 6.5 rebounds over 52 games during a 2012-13 campaign cut short in March by an Achilles injury that required surgery.
For his career, the 6-foot-11 Pachulia has averaged 6.8 points and 5.5 rebounds while starting 229 of his 689 games played.
Pachulia's addition, which cannot become official until the NBA's moratorium period ends on Wednesday, is the second notable free agent signing by Milwaukee. The Journal Sentinel reported Friday that the team struck a three- year, $24 million deal with former Mavericks shooting guard O.J. Mayo.
