James Young has a new home for his NBA career, at least through training camp later this month.
The former Kentucky Wildcat and 17th selection in the 2014 NBA draft signed a camp deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, per Inside Hoops.
Young spent his first three seasons in Boston, where he averaged only 2.3 points per game in 89 games over those three years. He also spent a lot of time playing for the Maine Red Claws, the Celtics’ G-League affiliate.
The new deal with the Bucks provides Young the opportunity to start over in the league, although he will have to earn his way onto the team’s final roster. Milwaukee’s current depth chart lists three shooting guards in the rotation: Tony Snell, Rashad Vaughn and rookie Sterling Brown, a second-round selection. Khris Middleton and Jabari Parker have the small forward position locked up.
Training camp begins on September 26 for most teams.
