Free agent point guard Tyronn Lue told The Boston Globe on Thursday that he had agreed to a two-year deal with the Bucks paying $2.5 million per season.
Lue was flying to Milwaukee today to sign the contract. The two-time NBA champion was very interested in playing for the Celtics but said they offered a little less than half than what Milwaukee did.
“I’m disappointed, man,” Lue said about the Celtics. “We were hoping to get it done for so long.”
Another veteran backup point guard the Celtics also have interest in is their own free agent Eddie House.
