After opening up several roster spots in their trade for Serge Ibaka, the Milwaukee Bucks were bound to bring in some reinforcements, which is precisely what they did with a move yesterday.

As first reported by ESPN insider Adrian Wojnarowski, Milwaukee has made the signing of guard DeAndre’ Bembry official after reporting on Tuesday that the two sides were close on a deal. The 27-year-old was waived by the Brooklyn Nets in the aftermath of the massive Ben Simmons trade this past Thursday, and he always seemed like a feasible buyout target for the Bucks. Now that he is officially on the team, let us break down the Bembry signing and give it a grade.

The financial aspect of DeAndre’ Bembry’s deal with the Milwaukee Bucks

According to Spotrac, Bembry’s deal with the Bucks is worth $601,867 for the remainder of the season, and he will become a free agent this offseason. Considering he is signing with the Bucks fresh off a buyout, the terms of this deal should not be surprising. The forward took a minimum deal to play out the rest of the season for a contender, which is typically what happens in these types of mid-season situations.

For the Bucks, this is a low-risk move from a financial perspective. They needed to fill the vacant spots on their roster, and a recognizable name like Bembry is a solid pick-up on a deal such as this one. They will now have an experienced player that can give them quality minutes on a minimum deal, which is a huge plus for a championship-contending team that has so much money tied up elsewhere on the roster.

Financially, this is as good as it gets for the Bucks.
