Earl Boykins signs with Bucks
 
Quote:

The Bucks are near an agreement with veteran point guard Earl Boykins, a move which would complete Milwaukee's point guard trio for the 2010-'11 season.

Sources indicated a one-year deal could be reached within the next week to bring Boykins back to the Bucks for a second time. The 5-foot-5 guard played last season with the Washington Wizards and appeared in 67 games while averaging 6.6 points and 2.6 assists in 16.7 minutes per game.

Boykins, 34, has played for nine NBA teams in 11 seasons. He was a popular player with the Bucks during the 2006-'07 season after being obtained in a trade with the Denver Nuggets.

The Bucks needed help in the backcourt that season after injuries sidelined Michael Redd and Mo Williams. Boykins stepped in and played in 35 games, including 19 starts, and averaged 14.0 points.

Boykins hit two free throws in the final second to help the Wizards beat the Bucks in a game in Washington last season.

Following the departure of free agent Luke Ridnour, who signed a four-year, $16 million deal with Minnesota, the Bucks signed veteran Keyon Dooling as the primary backup to point guard Brandon Jennings.

Now the Bucks will have two veteran point guards to assist Jennings, who will be starting his second NBA season after helping lead Milwaukee to a playoff berth last season.

If this is true

They got Earl Boykings,Keyon Dooling,Corey Maggette, Chris Douglas Roberts, Drew Gooden and John Salmons all this offseason

If Bogut stays healthy this team will be great. And Imagine if Redd could actually stay healthy :eek:

yeah they added depth and basically turned Redd into a mere bonus to the team if he is at least able to play any minutes at all

Even if Redd is back, he isn't going to do anything. The guys athleticism is just 100% gone, even before this other injury he had last year.

Yeah Bucks will be better than they have since the 80s. Lets not forget they got Jennings to. It was very tough for me between him, Tyreke and Curry for ROTY. My final choice was Jennings.

It's not like Boykins is going to be playing a chunk of minutes. He's just there to add some depth to the PG spot.

Good pickup. They lost ridnour, and need a backup pg, and Boykins is definitely a capable player.
