The bench unit for the Milwaukee Bucks will look pretty different next season.

Free agent guard Jerryd Bayless has agreed to a three-year deal with the Philadelphia 76ers, according to Jon Krawczynski of the Associated Press. The deal will be for a total of $27 million.

Bayless' signing comes on the same day his former teammate O.J. Mayo received a two-year ban from the NBA for violating the league's anti-drug program. Milwaukee's current backup guard rotation at this moment only includes Tyler EnnisRashad Vaughn and rookie Malcolm Brogdon, all inexperienced players.

Bayless battled with injuries in his second season with the club, but still finished as the Bucks' best shooter from deep. Despite missing 30 games, he finished the season with a 43% mark from the 3-point line, a career-high. He finished the season averaging 10.4 points off the bench on 42% shooting.
