The last FA domino falls

You have to give Jon Horst some credit: What looked like a dire situation has been largely reversed into what could be described as a decisive free agency period for the Milwaukee Bucks.

Fresh off the announcement that Bryn Forbes was on his way to Milwaukee, Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Bucks have also signed free agent wing Torrey Craig:

We’ve yet to hear specific contract details (and will update once we have them), but the cap-o-nomics would seem to suggest that Craig is joining Milwaukee on a minimum deal.

Craig, who will turn 30 in December, will be entering his fourth NBA season after spending his first three years with the Nuggets. At 6’7”, he spent the majority of his time in Denver as a three or occasional two, and as Woj laid out, Craig’s defensive versatility probably makes him our Wes Matthews replacement when it comes to defending elite wings.

He’s a career .320 shooter from three, so it’s a definite downgrade in perimeter shooting, though he’ll be used to staying in his lane from distance having notched a .513 3PAr last year.

As of now, this looks like the last signing the Bucks will be making this free agency period with a roster standing at 14 players (plus two-way guys Jaylen Adams and Mamadi Diakite).

Not bad, Bucks.
