The Milwaukee Bucks announced on Sunday plans to sign Sean Kilpatrick for the remainder of the season. According to Shams Charania, signing Kilpatrick will result in his two-way deal will become a full contract.
Kilpatrick was released by the Brooklyn Nets in December, which gave the Bucks the opportunity to sign the shooting guard to a two-way deal. Kilpatrick played in 16 games for the Nets before his release.
Brooklyn waived the 28-year-old Kilpatrick following the trade that landed them Jahlil Okafor and Nik Stauskas.
During the 2016-2017 campaign, the undrafted guard out of Cincinnati had a career year and seemed to have found a home with the Nets. In a career-high 70 games that year, he averaged 13 points and two assists.
Kilpatrick had a puzzling, slow start to this season and couldn’t find a footing early in the year. His inconsistent play saw his minutes drop from a career 25 per game the year before to 11 per game this season.
The Bucks will waive center Joel Bolomboy to make room for Kilpatrick. He was signed to two-way deal back in October.
Milwaukee’s decision to waive Bolomboy came in a surprise move as the team had only just announced the team was signing him to a full deal hours earlier.
Bolomboy, 23, played in 6 games this year for the Bucks.
