Bucks Sign Keyon Dooling
The Milwaukee Bucks have signed guard Keyon Dooling (6-3, 195) to a contract, General Manager John Hammond announced today.
A 10-year NBA veteran, Dooling averaged 6.9 points, 2.5 assists and 1.0 rebound in 53 games (eight starts) for the New Jersey Nets last season. He enjoyed his best statistical season in 2008-09 when he averaged 9.7 points, 3.5 assists and 2.0 rebounds in 77 games for the Nets.
Selected by Orlando with the 10th overall pick in the 2000 NBA Draft, Dooling was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers where he played the first four years of his NBA career. After one season with the Miami Heat (2004-05), he signed as a free agent with Orlando and played three seasons (2005-08) with the Magic. Prior to the 2008-09 season, Orlando traded Dooling to the Nets for cash considerations.
Dooling, 30, has played in 595 career NBA games (62 starts) and holds averages of 7.2 points, 2.2 assists and 1.4 rebounds per contest.
