Bucks Sign Tyronn Lue, Malik Allen

John Hammond has confirmed that the Bucks are nearing an agreement with 31 year old point guard Tyronn Lue. Like many NBA players, Lue is somewhat of the journeyman status, previously playing with Atlanta, Orlando, Dallas, Houston, Washington, and the Lakers.

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, both the Bucks and the Suns were vying for Lue's services. It appears the Bucks were able to offer a $2 million to $2.5 million one-year contract. The Suns were only offering the veteran minimum, $1.26 million.

Speculation has Lue and Sessions competing for the backup position to Mo Williams, but something tells me Mo could be on his way out. Personally, I want Sessions to be the starting point guard on this team, as I loved the skill and potential he showed earlier this spring. Even though Richard Jefferson mentioned playing with Mo in his press conference, I think his days as a Buck are numbered.

Update: Thanks to a tip from reader b2, we've also learned the Bucks have signed forward Malik Allen. These guys may not be household names, but they could be key additions to an already improving Milwaukee Bucks squad.
