Bucks Bring in Dooling

The Bucks search for a backup point guard may have ended on Monday when Keyon Dooling was signed to an undisclosed two-year contract. Dooling has played ten years so far in the NBA, most recently with the Orlando Magic and the New Jersey Nets. He's a solid veteran signing in a market where all of the point guards were pretty much already signed, minus Fond du Lac native Travis Diener who is still available (although rumor has it he's a bit too preoccupied with and old school NBA Jam arcade machine to focus on where he'll be signing. Just a rumor).

The Bucks may have also dealt Darnell Jackson to the Sacramento Kings for power forward Jon Brockman, although nothing has been confirmed. If that is true, that would mean that the Bucks have Drew Gooden, Ersan Ilyasova, Larry Sanders, Brockman, Tiny Gallon, and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute that can all play the power forward position. That's quite a rotation of guys there. I know all the talk in the East is going to be about the Celtics, Bulls, and Heat this season, but you have to argue that the Bucks may have the deepest team in the conference. It's going to be a good season, perhaps more impressive than the performances Trav is putting together on NBA Jam this summer.

You're forgetting the best team in the East next year -- the Magic.
