The Milwaukee Bucks have signed free-agent forward/guard Mike Dunleavy, Jr. (6-9, 220) to a multi-year contract, General Manager John Hammond announced today.
Dunleavy appeared in 61 games for the Pacers last season, his fourth in Indiana, and averaged 11.2 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.7 assists per contest. He scored in double figures 38 times, with Indiana posting a 10-6 mark when he tallied 15+ points. His 102 three-pointers on the season marked the third time in his career that he eclipsed the century mark.
A nine-year NBA veteran, Dunleavy has appeared in 627 games over his career while averaging 12.1 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists. He’s averaged 10+ points per game in seven of his nine NBA seasons, including a career-best 19.1 scoring average during the 2007-08 campaign in which he appeared in all 82 games and shot a career-high 42.4 percent from behind the arc (12th in the NBA). For his career, Dunleavy is a 36.1 percent shooter from long distance.
Selected by Golden State with the 3rd overall pick in the 2002 NBA Draft, Dunleavy played four-plus seasons with the Warriors before a mid-season trade sent him and three teammates to Indiana in exchange for a package highlighted by new Bucks teammate Stephen Jackson.
