NBA: Bucks sign center Voskuhl to 1-year deal
Associated PressMILWAUKEE Center Jake Voskuhl has signed a one-year contract with the Milwaukee Bucks.
Voskuhl, who played for the Charlotte Bobcats the last two seasons, is expected to add depth to Milwaukee's frontcourt, backing up 2005 No. 1 draft pick Andrew Bogut.
"Jake gives us another option at the post position," Bucks coach Larry Krystkowiak said. "He's someone that knows how to do the important things and is willing to go to work in the trenches. These are qualities that we plan to focus on as a team. He's excited to come to Milwaukee and we can't wait to start working with him."
A seven-year NBA veteran, Voskuhl has averaged 4.6 points and 3.8 rebounds while shooting 49.7 percent. He played in a career-high 73 games last season and averaged 4.4 points and 3.5 rebounds.
