Hakim Warrick, an athletic 6-foot-9 forward who played the past four seasons with the Memphis Grizzlies, has reached agreement with the Bucks on a one-year deal, sources indicated Friday.
Warrick averaged 11.6 points and 5.0 rebounds while appearing in all 82 games for the Grizzlies last season, primarily in a bench role.
The Grizzlies withdrew their qualifying offer to Warrick last week, making him an unrestricted free agent. A number of teams showed interest in Warrick, including the Cleveland Cavaliers, Philadelphia 76ers and Charlotte Bobcats.
well i guess it's time for Cleveland to get their Joe Smith on

Good signing. I like what the Bucks have done this offseason. Get rid of as many long-term contracts as possible and sign players to reasonable deals. And if they do suck this upcoming season, they have a great chance at getting someone like Wall/Favors in the draft.
Better to suck and shed salary than stay near the luxury tax and be mediocre.
