SALT LAKE CITY – The Milwaukee Bucks reached an agreement on a one-year contract with former Utah Jazz guard Malik Beasley, according to The Athletic and Stadium’s Shams Charania.

The NBA insider reported Beasley’s deal with the Bucks on Monday, July 3.

“Free agent Malik Beasley has reached agreement on a one-year deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium . Agent Brian Jungreis of Par-Lay Sports & Entertainment negotiated the contract,” Charania tweeted. “Big pickup for the championship-contending Bucks: Beasley led the NBA in 3-pointers made off the bench last season and he bolsters their two-guard position with a significant opportunity in the rotation.”

Beasley’s deal with the Bucks is worth $2.7 million, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Beasley, 26, played for the Jazz during the first half of the 2022-23 season. Utah traded the guard to the Los Angeles Lakers prior to the trade deadline.

During his lone season with the Jazz, the Florida State product averaged 13.4 points per contest on 39.6 percent shooting, including 35.9 on three-pointers. Beasley also recorded 3.6 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.8 steals, and 0.1 steals in 26.8 minutes per game with the Jazz. He played in 55 games for Utah, including 13 starts.

After joining the Lakers, Beasley saw his production and time on the floor dip. During 26 games with Los Angeles, the guard averaged 11.1 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and 0.8 steals in 23.9 minutes per game.

Since he entered the NBA in 2016, Beasley has averaged 10.8 points per game on 42.2 percent shooting, including 37.8 percent from beyond the arc.

Beasley was originally drafted by the Denver Nuggets with the No. 19 overall pick in 2016. He’s played for the Nuggets, Minnesota Timberwolves, Jazz, and Lakers.

In June, the Lakers declined the team option on Beasley’s contract, making him an unrestricted free agent.
