MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Bucks on Monday re-signed forward Toni Kukoc after two productive seasons with the team.

Kukoc, acquired from the Atlanta Hawks after the 2002 season for forward Glenn Robinson, averaged 9.9 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game in two seasons for Milwaukee.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Kukoc has career averages of 12.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.9 assists in 728 regular-season games over 11 seasons. He won three championships with the Chicago Bulls from 1995-98 and has appeared in 96 career playoff games.

Before his NBA career, the native of Croatia played professionally in the former Yugoslavia (1989-91) and Italy (1991-93).

Kukoc won a silver medal at the 1988 Olympics with Yugoslavia and another four years later as a member of the Croatian Olympic team.
