Bucks, Zaza Agree to Three-Year Deal
The Milwaukee Bucks gave a boost to their center position late Saturday as they reached a verbal agreement on a three-year, $15 million deal with veteran center Zaza Pachulia, a league source confirmed.
Pachulia will be a strong complement to Larry Sanders at the center position, giving the Bucks a more physical player to go along with the length and shot-blocking ability of Sanders.
The 6-foot-11 Pachulia averaged 5.9 points and 6.5 rebounds for the Atlanta Hawks last season and played under current Bucks coach Larry Drew.
Pachulia played with the Bucks during the 2004-’05 season after arriving in a trade with Charlotte. He averaged 6.2 points and 5.1 rebounds in 74 games
