The Greivis Vasquez era in Milwaukee was short lived.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, Vasquez has come to terms on a one-year deal with the Brooklyn Nets. The financials of the deal were not disclosed, but Vasquez is expected to make the league minimum or a figure slightly above it.

Having lost out on restricted free agents Allen Crabbe and Tyler Johnson this weekend, the Nets are taking an alternative route in free agency to improve the lack of scorers on its roster.

Vasquez was acquired by the Bucks on draft night in 2015 for Milwaukee's 46th selection (Norman Powell) and a 2017 first-round draft pick.

Vasquez, 29, is coming off the toughest season of his NBA career. On top of setting new lows in field-goal percentage (33%) and 3-point percentage (25%), he played in only 23 contests after having foot surgery in December to remove a bone spur and loose bodies from his right ankle. Regardless, before and after surgery, his play was never what the Bucks were expecting when they made the deal. Although he showed solid passing, Vasquez's shot was off and he never found an ounce of rhythm on offense.

For a one-year experiment they hoped could grown into something further, it's clear the trade didn't work out in the Milwaukee's favor at all.
