Rumor mill: Bayless to Bucks?

7/16/2014

Free-agent combo guard Jerryd Bayless appears to be headed to Milwaukee:

Rapid reaction: The Celtics acquired Bayless in January in a swap with the Memphis Grizzlies that also served as a chance to unload Courtney Lee's cumbersome contract. Bayless brought some additional ball-handling and, true to his reputation, got hot at times as a scorer off the bench. But with Boston adding depth at the guard position this offseason, including drafting Marcus Smart at No. 6 overall, it was clear that Bayless wouldn't be back. The 25-year-old Bayless talked about laying some roots, but now he appears off to his sixth team in six NBA seasons. -- Chris Forsberg
